The Singapore Dollar?
The Singaporean dollar (SGD) came into circulation in 1967, with each dollar consisting of 100 cents. The Singapore dollar is often referred to as “Sing” by locals.
The denominations of banknotes for SGD is $2, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100, $1000, Singapore also has a $10000 note which is technically still a legal tender but is no longer manufactured in hopes it will stop circulating. The denominations for coins are $1, $0.50, $0.20, $0.10 and $0.05. Fun Fact: The $1000 note is printed with the entire lyrics of the Singapore national anthem on it.
So how much cash do you need in Singapore? On average the cost of living in Singapore is 10% higher than in Australia so that means you should definitely be budgeting a bit more than usual and be carrying more cash than you may normally.
