SG50 - a new range of S$50 and S$10 notes - with an eye both on past and future
A set of commemorative currency notes to celebrate SG50 - consists of one piece S$50 and five pieces of S$10. We can change at the bank for these new notes at face value. The notes’ designs drew inspiration from significant milestones and achievements in Singapore's history, the multiracialism that defines Singapore as a nation and the values and aspirations that underpin Singapore's progress. For example, the S$50 note highlights Singapore's history, transformation and future. It shows the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew shouting 'Merdeka!' - the rallying cry of Singapore's independence struggle. See source from here. The set is beautiful. Love that it comes with the red box and folder. I managed to change 2 sets by queueing for only 30 minutes. Some banks saw longer queues. We can change only 5 sets by the first only the first two sets comes with boxes and folders.
