No. 501.
BRITISH CARIBBEAN COINS.

T'ntil now the Eastern Group of the
PRlish Caribbean Territories has used
United Kingdom coins, except that
Jamaica has used pennies half-pennies
and iarthings of its own distinctive de-
signs, .and British Guiana its own four-
perny pieces. Often, however, the United
Kingdom denominations have been ex-
pressed, in losal usage, in cents, one cent
being equivalent to one half-penny.
The Territories have agreed to adopt
a unified system of decimal currency
based on the local dollar, with the cent
as the one hundredth part. The coinage,
consisting of 50 cents, 25 cents, 10 cents,
5 cents, 2 cents, 1 cent and 1/2 cent de-
no-rinations, has been struck by the
Royal Mint and will shortly be issued
in the Territories, with the exception of
Jomnaica.
The highest three denominations
have been struck in cupro-nickel, in the
same metal as the United Kingdom half-
crown etc; the 5 cents in nickel-brass,
in the same metal as the United King-
dom twelve-sided threepenny piece; and
the lowest three denominations in
bronze, in the same metal as the United
Kingdom penny etc.
All the coins bear on one side the
crowned effigy of Her Majesty as it
appears on the coins of other Depend-
eat Territories.
1he designs on the othe: side of the
coins are:--
50 cents-Combined Armr of the
Territories
25 cents
10 cents -Drake's Golden Hind.
5 cents
2 cents -Crossed Branches of
1 cent ) Palm
The 12 cent design consists of the in-
scription "BRITISH CARIBBEAN TER-
RITORIES-EASTERN GROUP ", the
denomination and the date all of which
are also incorporated in the designs of
the other denominations.
Mr. Cecil Thomas, O.B E., F.R.B.S.
modelled the effigy of Her Majesty in
1952. He was born in 1885 and is a Past
Master of the Art Workers Guild. His
previous work includes recumbent effi-
gies and portrait busts iin Canterbury
Cathedral anCd many othec places. He
has designed and engraved many seals.
His best known medal is the Coronation
Medal of Her Majesty. At the beginning
of the reign he also modelled the reverse
designs of the United Kingdom five shil-
lings, half-crown, two shillings and six-
penny pieces.
Mr. T. H. Paget, O.B.E. designed and
modelled all the reverse -_dres of the
new coinage. He is 62 year, old and
teaches at the Central School of Arts
and Crafts in London. He has done


much work for the Royal Mint includ-
ing the uncrowned effigy of King George
VI for coinage and the representation
of the Golden Hind on the United, King-
do:P halfpenny. Recently he has de-
signed coinages for Iraq, Bolivia, and
Uruguay.
The first issue of British Caribbean
.oins will be made on 15th November,
1955, in the following denominations 10
cents, 5 cents, 2 cents, one cent, half
cent. United Kingdom coms will how-
ever continue to be legal tender until
demonetized. Photographs of the new
coins will be on display in Banks and
Wardens' Offices.
