Ten types of coins featuring a dragon against a backdrop of Gardens by the Bay will be available for public purchase from Jan 1, 2024. The obverse of the coins will bear the Singapore Coat of Arms and the year 2024.

Releases in this coin series depict Singapore’s parks and natural landscapes, with previous editions featuring places like Coney Island Park, Haw Par Villa and East Coast Park.

The coins will have different face values, metallic compositions, shapes and minting relief effects, MAS said in a media release. Coin sets with different coin combinations will also be available.

Among the variations are a round nickel-plated zinc coin with a face value of S$2 and a mintage of 50,000; a 1 troy oz floral-shaped silver coin with the dragon in full colour, a face value of S$5 and a mintage of 12,000; and a 1g rectangular gold coin with a face value of S$5 and a mintage of 3,000.
