Posted by on Mar 9, 2015 in | No Comments

 

A long time ago, clan houses and triads in Singapore and other parts of Southeast Asia paid coolies in a special currency made of Chinese porcelain. Retrace the history of Singapore’s coolie migrants and their social culture through the use of this unique currency in the book Coolie Currency, which features the most complete collection of coolie currency for the first time ever.
