The Singaporean dollar (SGD) came into circulation in 1967, with each dollar consisting of 100 cents. You might hear the dollar being affectionately referred to as ‘sing’ by the locals.
TThe 10,000 SGD note is currently the most valuable banknote in the world, although in 2014 Singapore stopped printing it, with the aim of taking it out of circulation. It is still legal tender, and will be until the last notes are returned to the Monetary Authority of Singapore.
You are likely to find a 10% service charge added to your bill in restaurants. If not, there is no general rule for how much you should leave – it’s really up to you and whatever you feel comfortable giving. Remember though: if you’re in an airport restaurant tipping isn’t typically allowed, whereas tipping in bars or taxis is very uncommon.
Frequently used banknotes
Notes are available to the value of 2 (violet), 5 (green), 10 (red), 50 (blue), 100 (orange), 1,000 (purple) and 10,000 (brown) SGD.
The latest series of coins are to the value of 5, 10, 20, and 50 cents, as well as one dollar. There are many of the old 1 cent coins in circulation, but these are no longer being issued. Given the very low value of 1 cent SGD (roughly the equivalent of 0.005 GBP), it is unlikely you will end up with one.

Excellent service with good exchange…
Excellent service with good exchange rates and speed of delivery. One suggestion: Allow your purchase minimum limit of $500 AUD cover the sum of several denominations. For example, I wish to purchase Hong Kong Dollars and Dirham but the AUD cost for each denomination is less than $500; however, the total cost is more than $500 AUD.Marilyn

Very easy process ordering on line
Very easy process ordering on line The only feedback I have is it’s confusing on line to ascertain exactly which Travelex I need to attend at Tullamarine airport - they are many little store within the airport and firstly I went to the wrong store to pick up the moneyChristine Anne Balfour
