Singapore 5-CENTS (KM8) White Pomfret

The White Pomfret (aka Silver Pomfret) can grow up to 4-6 kg, but due to over fishing are more commonly caught weighing under 1 kg. The fish's distinctive shape and highly prized flavour in the Indo-Pacific region make it easy to identify on this coin, even though the Singapore mint simply calls it a 'fish'.

This one-year only coin is an FAO issue.
