Singapore Botanic Gardens UNESCO World Heritage Site
The Singapore Botanic Gardens (SBG) was inscribed into the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites on 4 July 2015. It is the only tropical botanic garden in the world to be inscribed into the list. In celebration of this historic achievement, the Monetary Authority of Singapore is proud to present the Singapore Botanic Gardens UNESCO World Heritage Site Commemorative coin. This coin, issued in 1 troy oz 999 Fine Silver Proof Colour, showcases various elements that contributed to the success of SBG's inscription as an UNESCO World Heritage Site. The design features a cluster of rubber trees with herringbone incisions, the iconic Bandstand with accompanying yellow rain trees and sprays of Renanthera Singapore Botanic Gardens and Grammatophyllum speciosum, commonly known as the Tiger orchid, in vibrant colours and intricate engravings.
