There are two popular myths behind the design of the Singapore’s $1 coin.
Rumor 1: the shape of the $1 coin mimics the shape of the Ba Gua
Note the similarity between the Ba Gua and the shape of the $1 coin. According to fengshuibeginners.com, the one-dollar coin came into circulation at the time of the MRT construction on the island. Reverend Hong, an expert at feng shui indicated that the construction of the MRT will be bad for the nation. Reverend Hong therefore advised to counter the negativity by having everyone carry a Ba Gua. An ingenious way to do so, while remaining sensitivity to the differences in race and religion, was to make the $1 coin the shape of a Chinese Ba Gua!
RUMOR 2: The changes in the ARC OF THE BANNER (MAJULAH SINGAPURA) WAS RELATED TO FENGSHUI
Rumors indicated that the change of the arc from a downwards sloping one to an upwards sloping one was due to the advise of a fengshui master. A downward sloping arc bore similarities to a sad face which was not great especially during the Asian Financial Crisis.
