Seal of the scroll accompanying the Mace of the City of Singapore

Prominent Chinese philanthropist Loke Wan Tho presented this golden Mace to the City of Singapore in conjunction with the granting of a Royal Charter by King George VI in 1951, which raised the status of Singapore to a City. The Mace was made by Messrs Hamilton & Inches, Goldsmiths of Edinburgh. The design motifs were suggested by a committee consisting of Loke, university professors, and the staff of Raffles Museum, which later became the National Museum of Singapore.
