Monetary unit of Singapore is the dollar which consists of 100 cents. In circulation there are coins of denomination 5, 10, 20, 50 cents and 1 dollar.

On April, 7th, 1967 in Singapore there was an issue of the first coins and denominations. However, the dollar Singapore was replaceable face value with a Malaysian ringgit till 1973, and interchangeability with dollar Brunei is still supported.

In 1967 the first series of coins of Singapore has been presented by dignity to 1, 5, 10, 20 and 50 cents and 1 dollar. Except bronze 1 cent, other coins have been rapped out from a Copper-Nickel. In 1985, the second series of coins has been manufactured in the same dignities. The sizes of coins have been reduced (most essentially for large dignities) and a coin of 5 cents began to mint from Aluminum-Bronze an alloy. In 1987 the size of a coin 1 dollar and a manufacturing material also has been reduced the alloy is replaced on Aluminum-Bronze.
