The Low Down on Singapore Currency

Currency:

Singapore dollar

Currency code:

SGD

Central Bank:

Monetary Authority of Singapore

Currency symbol:

S$ or $

Currency sub unit:

c (cent)

Bank notes:

S$2, S$5, S$10, S$20, S$50, S$100, S$1,000

The Singaporean dollar (SGD) came into circulation in 1967, with each dollar consisting of 100 cents. You might hear the dollar being affectionately referred to as ‘sing’ by the locals.



TThe 10,000 SGD note is currently the most valuable banknote in the world, although in 2014 Singapore stopped printing it, with the aim of taking it out of circulation. It is still legal tender, and will be until the last notes are returned to the Monetary Authority of Singapore.



You are likely to find a 10% service charge added to your bill in restaurants. If not, there is no general rule for how much you should leave – it’s really up to you and whatever you feel comfortable giving. Remember though: if you’re in an airport restaurant tipping isn’t typically allowed, whereas tipping in bars or taxis is very uncommon.

Your system works

Everything went smoothly except when I went to pick up the money. There was no-one at the Travelex desk - I had to wait 5 minutes and no-one in the bank let me know what was happening. Eventually the teller arrived. She asked for my printout of the email, got out the envelope, opened it, asked me for my id; then told me it was wrong. It was then that she realised she had opened the wrong envelope, and found the correct one. So I am confirming that your system with its checks and balances works.
