    There are two major anniversaries being celebrated in Singapore this year. Both have to do with the colonial past.
    First the Bicentennial anniversary of Stamford Raffel's landing and establishment of Singapore as a British colony in 1819:

    A commemorative S$20 note is available: https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news...nched-11597998
    Don't know if it will be an expensive collector's item in the future, since it will be issued in quite large number. (2 Mill.)

    Second is the 60th Anniversary of Singapore as an internally self-governing Crown Colony in 1959:

    PS> 1959 was also the first time I set foot on Singapore soil.
