Singapore coins pre-1985 were all about the fish, scorpion fish to swordfish to seahorses. Then in 1985 they switched to flower designs. I'm not exactly sure why but I suspect it has to due with overfishing, land reclamation, and pollution. They have a good forest program and can always keep plants alive even in small numbers.
