The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) issued a series of coins from 2004 to 2008 to commemorate the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) Identity Plan. The first series is launched in conjunction with URA’s Old World Charm Heritage Trail. URA’s Identity Plan aims to preserve the unique “essence” of places that are close to Singaporeans’ hearts by recognising, retaining and enhancing them. These areas are grouped into various clusters. MAS issued a set of coins featuring one of the clusters from 2004 to 2008:
2004 – Old World Charm
2005 – Urban Villages
2006 – Rustic Coast
2007 – Southern Ridges & Hillside Villages
2008 – Northern Wetlands & Central Catchments

The coin designs are based on distinctive features of the four areas in the Southern Ridges cluster – Mount Faber, Telok Blangah Hill Park, Kent Ridge Park and Labrador Nature Reserve. A common theme that runs through the coins is the architectural designs of two key pedestrian bridges at the Southern Ridges: the 80m long Alexandra Arch across Alexandra Road which connects to the 1.6km long elevated walkway leading to Telok Blangah Hill Park; and the 274m long Henderson Waves, which spans across Henderson Road to connect Telok Blangah Hill Park to Mount Faber Park.

MAS Press Release:

Singapore, 18 August 2006…The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) today launched a set of coins to commemorate Singapore’s hosting of the 2006 Annual Meetings of the Boards of Governors of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank Group (WB).

Singapore 2006 represents the most comprehensive gathering of global financial representatives and is the largest financial sector event to be held in Singapore. The event is expected to draw about 16,000 visitors including political leaders, key decision makers from the financial world and the international media. The hosting of this prestigious event will position Singapore as a global city with a world of opportunities and showcase its many offerings and exciting activities. The 2006 meetings will further profile Singapore as an international financial centre.

Singapore 2006 is an important occasion not just for Singapore, but also for Asia, to demonstrate the significant developments and structural reforms that have taken place in the region since the Asian Financial Crisis. In conjunction with the IMF/WB Annual Meetings, there will be a series of high-profile seminars with a strong focus on Asia and ASEAN covering a wide range of development, financial and economic issues.

Delegates and visitors can also look forward to the inaugural Singapore Biennale, a global showcase of contemporary culture and visual arts infused with the rich and diverse cultural elements of Singapore and Asia.

The coin design features Singapore’s skyline, which represents the unique accomplishments of Singapore. An icon of our thriving financial and business hub, the skyline also reflects the vibrancy of the local arts and cultural scenes with the Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay in the foreground.

The map of the world, with the lion symbol pointing to the location of Singapore, conveys the message that Singapore is well connected to the rest of the world, a place where people and activities converge, offering endless possibilities and diverse opportunities.

The stylised bud at the left of the coin is the logo for Singapore 2006, symbolising the life force of Singapore and the country’s potential for growth in the global economy.

The coin was jointly designed by Dr Elsie Yu and Fabian Lim (Berwin Creation).
