A brief annotation The Orchid hybridization programme was started in 1928 by the Singapore Botanic Gardens. To date, the Gardens has succeeded in registering more than 400 hybrids. This has played a significant role in boosting Singapore`s cut-flower export industry, which augurs well with the Government`s vision for Singapore to be a centre for horticulture excellence. Following the success of the Heritage Orchids of Singapore coin set series that was issued from 2006 to 2010, the Monetary Authority of Singapore is proud to present The Grandeur of Heritage Orchids Series. This coin set which comprises 10 Silver Proof coins each featuring an orchid in full colour brilliance from the Heritage Orchids of Singapore Coin Series epitomizes the effulgence of the 10 local hybrids. Oncidium Goldiana is one of them.
