The Singapore Symphony Orchestra is now in its third successful year (in 1986). A babe in the league of world orchestras, but a healthy one. An orchestra that is gaining in strength and popularity with each performance. This commemorative medallion is a tribute in gold to the founding of our national orchestra. It is also a pledge of faith in its future. The SSO has commissioned the Singapore Mint to design and mint the commemorative medallion. Like the SSO itself the medallion perpetuates a great tradition.

The reverse bears the graceful logo of the SSO. The obverse presents the elegant classical frontage of the Victoria Memorial Hall, home of the SSO.

The issue of this medallion coincides with the celebration of Singapore’s 16th Nation Day on August 9th, 1981.

Cupro-Nickel One Dollar

There is not much of these coins in circulated condition, because it is hoarded whenever people get hold of it. Also due to its weight, its rather heavy to carry around in the pockets. Rather the paper $1 is preferred for daily transaction. Few people were aware that they can change for the $1 at banks, and hence there was a perception that these coins are rare.

Here are the mintage numbers:

2009 Singapore 44th Years of Independence

Item: Singapore 44 Years of Independence
Denomination: S$2
Weight: 20.000 g, 0.9999 Silver 0.6429 oz ASW
Diameter: 38.70 mm
Thickness: 2.50 mm
Finish: Proof
Mintage: 5,000
Date Issue: 24-Jul-2009
Issue Price: S$66.00

The coin design is based on the 2009 National Day Parade (NDP) theme, “Come Together – Reaching Out, Reaching Up”, which draws inspiration from the Singapore Pledge. At the centre of the coin are silhouette images of a man and a woman taking the pledge before the Singapore flag to symbolize the coming together as “one united people, regardless of race, language or religion”.

On the right are five stylized human figures reaching up into the sky in different colours that match the five stars in the NDP 09 logo. This reflects the second aspect of the NDP theme, to reach up towards our hopes and aspirations.

The tagline in the NDP 09 logo, “Reaching Out – Reaching Up”, underpins a stylized version of the Marina Bay’s floating platform, the venue of the NDP 2009 celebration.
