$1 Bagua - the new $1 is amazing

We all heard of the urban legend:-

Singapore prospers as it is the heart of the "dragon" (Southeast Asia). The PM at that time, Mr Lee Kuan Yew, wanted to build a modern subway train system but was advised by a revered monk against tunnelling, as tunnelling would damage the heart of the dragon.

Mr Lee insisted as all modern cities must have a modern subway, as the story goes.
Sure enough, during construction of our MRT system, there was a huge recession of our local economy.

And the monk ask Mr Lee to let all Singaporeans carry a "bagua" (8 sided talisman) to counter the negative effects.

How to make all singaporeans carry a ba-gua?

And so the economy recovers.

You decide. I just think its pretty entertaining.

And the new series of coins was launched on 25 June 2013.
And the haze disappeared into HAIL!
HAHAHA! quite entertaining :D
