The Singapore Coins and Notes Museum Opens
 
The Singapore Coins and Notes Museum (SCNM) opened its doors to the public on July 1. Located in a restored Chinese shophouse in the bustling heritage district of Singapore’s Chinatown, SCNM is the country’s first and only museum dedicated to exhibiting currency. Conceptualised by the Singapore Mint in 2008, the Museum has been opened with support from the National Heritage Board’s Heritage Industry Incentive Programme.

Yip Pak Ling, Director of the Singapore Coins and Notes Museum said, “The Singapore Coins and Notes Museum presents an opportunity for people to see beyond the functional purposes of money and appreciate the history of our nation in a novel and informative manner. Singapore, or Temasek as it was then known, started as a sleepy fishing village that gradually became a thriving port of economic activity. The Museum traces the evolution of our currency from the days of our forefathers to the present.”

A screening room and interactive zone are available for visitors who seek an in-depth look at the mechanics of coin manufacturing and the cultural significance of international currencies.

The Museum also boasts its own shop where visitors can purchase commemorative coins and medallions, currency memorabilia and souvenirs. As part of the Museum’s community outreach efforts, the shop will also carry an exclusive gift collection provided by the Mother and Child Project – a social enterprise aimed at providing disadvantaged mothers with home-based jobs such as sewing, jewellery and handicraft making.
