BRITISH CARIBBEAN CURRENCY
NOTES
ON the Ist August, 1951. the Currency
Ordinance. 1950, was brought into effect
by Proclamation insofar as it relates to
currency notes.
2. Circulation of new British Caribbean
currency notes will commence in this Colo-
ny on 10th September, 1951. These notes
will be legal tender throughout the Eastern
Group of the British Caribbean Territories
viz.-Barbados, British Guiana. Trinidad,
the Leeward and Windward Islands.
3. Currency notes issued by the Gov-
ernment of Trinidad, in circulation at pre.
sent, will continue to be legal tender in
this Colony, notwithstanding the new issue
of British Caribbean currency notes. Si-
milarly currency notes issued by the Gov-
ernment of Trinidad will continue to be
legal tender in the Leeward and Windward
Islands.
4. It is important that the public
should realise that the new issue of Bri.
tish Caribbean currency notes in no wali
affects the validity of Trinidad currency
notes which remain legal tender until
they are demonetized by Proclamation is-
sued by the governor of that Colony un-
der the Currency Ordinance, 1950, which
action will not be taken until a few years
have elapsed, and a comparatively small
number of these notes remain in circula-
tion. Even after demonetization the hold-
ers of any such notes will be entitled at
any time to claim payment of the face
value thereof from the British Caribbean
Currency Board.
5. Currency notes issued by the Gov-
ernment of Irinidad, should therefore
continue to be accepted as legal teder in
payment of any sum, until or unless they
are demonetized when payment of the
face value may be claimed from the Bri-
tish Caribbean Currency Board only.
