Shop/Coins/Singapore Coins/Orchid Series/2011 - 2016 Native Orchids of Singapore Coins
The abundant rainfall and heat of Singapore’s tropical climate favours a rich diversity of plant species, including orchids. However, the rapid urbanization of Singapore has caused much loss to our natural habitats and native species. To preserve the beauty of our natural world, the Singapore Botanic Gardens has initiated an Orchid Conservation Programme to cultivate, propagate and re-introduce some of the native orchids back to our environment for all to enjoy.

To celebrate the beauty of these unique blooms, the Monetary Authority of Singapore proudly presents the inaugural 2011 Native Orchids of Singapore Coins. These coins will come in two designs featuring two native orchids – Cymbidium finlaysonianum and Grammatophyllum speciosum. In addition, these coins will feature a special semi-rimless feature at the bottom of the coin, the first of its kind in Singapore. This special feature further accentuates the splendour of the beautiful blooms.
