History of Singapore Dollar

The Singapore dollar or SGD was introduced in 1967, two years after it separated from Malaysia, and was valued against the British Pound at a rate of 8.57 per GBP. The Straits dollar was the currency of the country in the 1920s, which was replaced by the Malayan dollar in 1939. Post the establishment of SGD, three series of coins and four series of banknotes were introduced. Since 1985, the SGD has been allowed to float and has emerged as the 13th most traded currency in the global market. The value of the currency is secured by the country's secured real estate market as well as a strong financial sector. The country's economy is backed by exports of items such as chemicals, electronics, petroleum products, and pharmaceuticals. A meritorious workforce and booming economy contribute to a strong global presence of the SGD.
