Singapore/Malaya 1 Square 1 Cent Coins

Did you know that Singapore used to have 1 cent coins in the shape of a square with rounded ages? These 1 cent coins are even bigger than our 10 cents coin we are using now. In the 1940s-1950s, a few of these 1 cent coins can buy you a meal. The one cent coins issued around the 1940s bear the portrait of King George, while those minted in 1953 bear the portrait of Queen Elizabeth.

Coins are also for sale
1 SGD each
