The Foundation for the Arts and Social Enterprise, in partnership with the Singapore Precious Metals Exchange (SGPMX), is commissioning the launch of 8 Presidential Coins in both silver and gold versions in 2019.
The Foundation has invited 8 Singapore-based established and emerging artists to give their unique take on Singapore’s Presidents. These portraits will be minted in gold and silver.
The project will raise awareness of Singapore’s Presidents, their respective legacies as guardians of the Republic and their contributions in the context of their time. It will also promote the local art and literary scene through the commissioning of local talent, to contribute to the evolving narrative about the Presidency.
Part of the sales proceeds of the commemorative limited edition coins will be pledged to a PA arts-related fund and to support the Foundation’s arts projects.
