MAS unveils new Singapore coins
[Update: The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) announced that the Singapore Third Series coins will be available at retail banks in Singapore from 25 June 2013. All past and current series coins will still be valid and the public can continue to use them for payment alongside the new coins.]
The third series of coins, announced by the Monetary Authority of Singapore on Thursday, will feature images of national icons and landmarks, replacing the floral designs of current coins. The new set will also have enhanced security features such as electro-magnetic signatures so they can be differentiated from fakes and foreign coins.
