Singapore Mint

The Singapore Mint was founded in 1968, after the independence of Singapore from Malaysia.[1] It is a government company responsible for making the currency of Singapore and keeping it from being counterfeited. There are 3 outlets, 20 Teban Gardens Crescrent, Orchard Central #02-01 and 40 Pagoda St. They sell various Singapore gifts such as Singapore Coins and Singapore souvenirs. For coin collectors, they also sell foreign coins to save the hassle of shipping in from other countries. The Singapore mint also runs a Singapore Coins and Notes Museum, admission fee at $10 for adults and $6 for students, NSF and senior citizens.[2] The coin gallery is closed.[3] The mint collected S$5 million in 2009 when it organised a coin-note exchange, twice the amount of previous years, possibly due to the economic downturn.[4]
