Anyone care to enlighten me if Singapore use to have any 90% junk silver coins like America?

Personally I will recommend beginners to start with common bullion silver coins like silver eagles, silver maples, philharmonics, libertards, kooks, or koala. Start with current year and if their interest deepens, dive in to form their own favourite sets.

I do not recommend junk silver or rounds because it will be very difficult to liquidate (from a starter's perspective). And definitely will not recommend any proof coins or Singapore Mint products to starters.

For starter for small amount, would recommend koala and kook.

No need waste money on capsule and keep worrying about milkspot.

Milkspot can appear on any coins. I have seen milkspots on koalas and kooks before. Maybe the incidence for milkspots in Perth Mint coins is lower from past experience, but we cannot guarantee the future.

For starters, I suggest getting a bit of all the most common bullion coins/bars like what daniel.yrh has mentioned, then develop the interest along the way and decide how/what to stack subsequently. For me, I still stack like a starter. :D

personally I think milk spots are getting more common these days. I have seen 2013 kooks/koala having milk spots, stock horse also. and most recent, Royal Mint Britannia proof coins...

not sure where the mints sourced their blanks from, but I think the increased capacity and production volume might have lead to some shortcuts along the manufacturing process.

Only during the Straits Settlements period from 1826 to 1946. Silver content was about .400 to .900 depending on denomination.

You can still find them in coin shops in Singapore.

First Series

The First Series of circulation coins was issued on 20 November 1967. These coins, displaying various designs, represented a dramatic break from the past, as coins issued by previous currency commissions had borne only the effigy of the reigning British monarch on the obverse. This was a reflection of the new status which Singapore had gained as an independent republic in 1965.
The coins in this series have a common reverse design. The denomination of the coin is in the centre with the year-date at the top. Two stalks of paddy are on the left with the word "SINGAPORE" on the right.

the coins were un-circulated, ie numismatic purposes

the much earlier silver coins in circulation before Singapore were malayan-british Straits Settlements
