GIC Office – A Torn Dollar Bill And Gold For Singapore

GIC was the brainchild of former Deputy Prime Minister Dr Goh Keng Swee. This showcase shows how the upheaval in global currency markets called for radical action. Seeking to protect our reserves, Dr Goh circumvented an embargo to buy gold. The actual torn US dollar bill that was used to authenticate the clandestine deal is held aloft golden waves, testament to a legacy of foresight, dedication, ingenuity and enterprise.
