Which countries use the Singapore Dollar?


The Singapore Dollar is the official currency of Singapore. The island state of Singapore is the primary country where you can trade SGD. That includes the main city as well as offshore communities like Pulau Hantu, St. Johns and Lazarus Island[1].

However, you can also spend Singapore Dollars in Brunei, a tiny sovereign nation in Borneo. The bond between these two countries is very strong; they entered a Currency Interchangeability Agreement in 1967[2]. That means you can spend Brunei Dollars in Singapore, too.


Singapore coins and banknotes


Singapore is a former British territory. Together with other Straits Settlements — Penang, Dingding and Malacca — it traded numerous foreign currencies throughout its history, including the Japanese ‘banana note’[3]. Yet in 1967, the country adopted the Singapore Dollar[4]. Like USD, one Dollar splits into 100 cents. You’ll be using[5]:




  • 1 c
  • 2 c
  • 5 c
  • 10 c
  • 20 c
  • 50 c
  • $s 1


Sometimes, you’ll hear and see SGD referred to as sing, differentiating it from American, Canadian and other currencies[6]. Banknotes have a yellow and pinkish tinge, decorated with a portrait of the first president – Encik Yusof Bin Ishak – and scenes of sport, nature and military regalia. Exchanging the Pound for Singapore Dollar will give you these notes:




  • $s 2
  • $s 5
  • $s 10
  • $s 50
  • $s 100
  • $s 1,000
  • $s 10,000

Common Singapore Dollar questions 


How much is 1 GBP to 1 SGD?

We can’t say for certain what you’ll receive from our exchange offers, because currency ratios are never fixed for long. 1 GBP is about 1.58 SGD*. If you’re wondering what 1,000 Singapore Dollars to GBP is, it’ll likely be around £630.

How much cash do I need for a week in Singapore?

Again, it’s all relative. Staying in a three-star hotel for a week at $s200 a night costs $s1,400 or £880 GBP. You might only need another £30 a day for basic living expenses, transport and a couple of treats.
