Singapore - Portrait Series (Polymer Banknote)

Singapore first introduced its $50 polymer banknote in 1990 in conjunction with its nation's 25th year anniversary. It has waited for more than a decade for Singapore to reintroduce its subsequent polymer banknote in circulation. Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), thus far, has issued three circulating polymer banknotes in the denomination of $2, $5 and $10 from 2004 to 2007.

The designs of these polymer notes are similar to their earlier portrait circulating paper notes, except a few changes such as unique security feature have been incorporated by using polymer technology. In addition, the color and size of these polymer banknote are same as its earlier paper notes.

$2

This $2 polymer note was issued on 12 January 2006. The front features the portrait of first President of Singapore, En. Yusof Bin Ishak. The back illustrates the education theme where a group of pupils interacting with a teacher in a "Borderless Classroom". Three prominent institutions of learning are seen in the background. From the extreme right is the institutions are Victoria Bridge School, the old Raffles Institution at Bras Basah Road, and the College of Medicine.

$5


This $5 polymer note was issued on 18 May 2007. The front features the portrait of first President of Singapore's, En. Yusof Bin Ishak. The back illustrates the garden city theme with the portrayal of the old tembusu tree (Fagraea fragrans) which still stands in the grounds of the Singapore Botanic Gardens. The majestic tree of more than 200 years is characterised by its firm and towering presence. The tree bears small red berries and has white flowers that are exceptionally fragrant. The sturdy tree with its highly branched canopy, epitomises the spirit of Singapore - strong, resilient and continuously striving for progress.

$10

This $10 polymer note was issued on 4 May 2004. The front features the portrait of first President of Singapore, En. Yusof Bin Ishak. The back illustrates a sport theme with Singaporean five popular sports. It depicts a jogger, a tennis player and a soccer player on one side, representing the most favoured land sports in Singapore. On the other side, swimming and sailing are pictured representing water sports. These are illustrated against a vibrant general design to convey the sense of energy and ruggedness symbolising sporting activities in general.
