1st Set of Singapore Coins

Many of you who are born after the 80s may have only seen the 1 cent, 10 cents and 20 cents but not the full set of these coins. The older coins had more elaborate designs and in my opinion, looks nicer than the current set of coins. Something interesting to note, the 1 dollar coin was changed from a silver round coin to a golden coin which looks like an octagon. Urban legend has it that it was the idea of a certain prominent political figure who had made the change after consulting a fengshui master. GIYBF, google is your best friend.

I have attached a scan of the 1982 proof set. The older coins were slightly bigger in size, especially the 1 dollar coin.
