The Singapore dollar is the official currency of Singapore, and has been since 1965 when Singapore became an independent nation and replaced the previously used Malaya and British Borneo dollar.
The dollar is divided into 100 cents, and is often called the "Sing". The Singapore dollar is accepted also in Brunei, and likewise, the Brunei dollar is accepted in Singapore.
