The Singapore dollar is the official currency of Singapore, which may be subdivided into 100 cents. As of 2016, the Singapore dollar is the twelfth-most traded currency in the world. Apart from its use in Singapore, the Singapore dollar is also accepted as customary tender in Brunei. Likewise, the Brunei dollar is also customarily accepted in Singapore.
From 1845 to 1939, Singapore used the Straits dollar. This was replaced by the Malayan dollar, and then from 1953 the Malaya and British Borneo dollar. Two years after Singapore's independence from Malaysia in 1965, the monetary union between Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei broke down. Singapore established its own dollar in 1967 and issued its first coins and notes. However, the Singapore dollar was exchangeable at par with the Malaysian ringgit until 1973,and is still interchangeable with the Brunei dollar.
Officially named the Republic of Singapore, the country lies one degree north of the equator, at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, with Indonesia's Riau Islands to the south and Peninsular Malaysia to the north. Singapore's territory consists of one main island along with 62 other islets. Since independence, extensive land reclamation has increased its total size by 23%.
