MAS has released coins based on the orchid theme.


(Singapore=Koreanpress) Benjamin Kim = The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) launched the 2014 Native Orchids of Singapore Coins. These are the fourth in a series that celebrates the beauty of over 200 species of orchids that once thrived in Singapore, some of which are still found in our forests today. The coins will be issued on July 23, 2014.

The Orchids

The coins feature two native orchids – Phalaenopsis cornu-cervi and Coelogyne rochussenii. Both orchids have been re-introduced successfully to parks and other nature areas.

i. Phalaenopsis cornu-cervi

The Phalaenopsis cornu-cervi is characterised by its star-shaped flowers, which are yellow with specks of deep maroon on them. The flowers measure about 3 cm to 4 cm in diameter and usually last for a long period of time. It usually grows on trees in exposed lowland areas and can be found in many parts of South-East Asia.

ii. Coelogyne rochussenii

The Coelogyne rochussenii has pale yellowish-green flowers, with the side-lobes of its white lip containing brown pigments. The lemon-scented flowers measure about 5 cm in diameter. Each hanging flower spray can reach 70 cm long with more than 30 flowers. Its flowers usually bloom in the morning and close partially in the evening.

The Coin Designs

A portion of the circumference of each coin is semi-rimless, which is a unique feature of the coins in the series.
