Journey through the country’s history of coins and notes, from early colonial rule and World War II to Singapore’s first orchid series and the portrait series, and check out rare collectables like the Harry Potter coin. Interactive displays that allow you to create coin rubbings and handle the metals used to make coins. Before you leave, pop your free souvenir token into the minting machine at the gift shop and watch it being minted right in front of you.

The museum consists of 2 floors. One of the levels showcases ancient currencies, the history of currency used in Singapore, and the coins & medallions of today, whilst the other features the different cultural usage of coins as well as a video presentation on the minting of coins

The museum’s shop is literally a treasure trove, where you can purchase commemorative coins and medallions, currency memorabilia and other souvenirs.

Open to the public from 24 June 2009, the museum was first conceptualized in 2008 by the Singapore Mint to showcase Singapore’s history and currency evolution, and is supported by the National Heritage Board’s Heritage Industry Incentive Programme.
