2002 Barbados 5 Cents Coin

Coins-World | AC coin$

The island-nation of Barbados is about to celebrate one full year of independency from the British crown. The island became a sovereign state on November 30th, 2021.

This shiny five cents coin brings us the National Coat of Arms (2002) and, a beautiful depiction of the South Point Lighthouse which is still under operation and have remained as a tourist hotspot for many years now.

The depiction if the lighthouse in this coin could be taken as an announcement of the island's shiny freedom 19 years later.

The BBD or Barbadian Dollar remains as the island's currency. The authorities, formerly under British scrutiny are now designing and moving the currency into a more modern and locally inspired versión. Regardless of their separación, Barbadian government keeps a friendly cooperation with British Overseas authorities.

Enjoy this beautiful coin as part of my international monetary acquisitions and expansive collection.

In my own words.

Thanks, I love the Caribbean coins, I wonder how many Barbados dollars it would cost to buy a bottle of Mount Gay rum, made in Barbados? LOL

Dear Bama, that rum is delicious, even mixed with coconut water... it runs about $57.00 in PR, if you are Lucky to find it. In Barbadian Dollars it might fly around 89.00 to 115.00, even higher. Thanks much for your comments.
