The Singapore dollar or dollar (Malay: Ringgit Singapura, sign: $; code: SGD) is the official currency of Singapore. It is normally abbreviated with the dollar sign $, or alternatively S$ to distinguish it from other dollar-denominated currencies. It is divided into 100 cents.
Singapore continued to use the common currency upon joining Malaysia in 1963, but only two years after Singapore's expulsion and independence from Malaysia in 1965, the monetary union between Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei broke down.
Singapore established the Board of Commissioners of Currency, Singapore, on 7 April 1967 and issued its first coins and notes. Nevertheless, the Singapore dollar was exchangeable at par with the Malaysian ringgit until 1973, and interchangeability with the Brunei dollar is still maintained.
Pearl smuggler Matt Gordon (Fred MacMurray) finds romance with Linda Grahame (Ava Gardner) just before the start of World War II. He proposes to her, and she accepts. However, when the Japanese attack Singapore, the church where she is waiting to marry him is bombed; Gordon searches frantically in the wreckage, but cannot find her. He is forced to sail away on his schooner.
With the end of the war, Gordon returns after five years and is met by Deputy Commissioner Hewitt (Richard Haydn), who is convinced he has returned for a hidden cache of pearls. So are Gordon's old criminal associates, Mr. Mauribus (Thomas Gomez) and his underling Sascha Barda (George Lloyd). Mauribus offers to buy the pearls, but Gordon denies he has any.
The first leg of his journey saw him hitching rides in lorries and cars to get to Singapore where he stayed for two months whilst waiting for approval from shipping company Blue Funnel Line’s headquarters in London to travel to Calcutta, India, in their ship.

SINGAPORE, Sept 22 (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) has ordered at least three electric ferries in Singapore to replace the diesel boats it uses to transport employees and visitors between mainland Singapore and its oil refining and chemicals plant on Bukom island, it said.
In the latest advancement in the use of battery-powered ferries around the world, Shell’s Singapore operations announced plans to introduce fully-electric ferries to replace conventional diesel-powered ferries currently used to transport passengers to its facilities.
At the outset there seem to be more challenges than optimism but this has been balanced against a bold prediction from Wartsila Voyage that we might be able to see the first fully autonomous ships calling in Singapore and Hong Kong in 10 to 15 years.
