Circulation Currency

MAS issues all Singapore dollar notes and coins and administers the Currency Act. It is responsible for the integrity, security, quality and confidence in the Singapore currency. MAS works closely with the banks, security couriers and appointed contractors to ensure cost-efficient and effective distribution of the Singapore currency as well as the availability of the currency to meet public demand. All notes and coins issued by MAS are legal tender in Singapore, and are fully backed by MAS’ assets. MAS also issues numismatic notes and coins to commemorate significant national achievements, inspire Singaporeans to celebrate their political, cultural and social heritage and to cater to collectors’ interests.
