Barbados is the easternmost island nation in the Lesser Antilles, first settled in 1624 by the British. It is the only Caribbean island that never changed hands during the colonial period. Barbados was granted independence in 1966, and is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations. It is one of the top tourist destinations in the Caribbean as well as one of the most developed nations in the region.
Barbados began issuing its own coins in 1973, seven years after independence. Barbadian coins usually feature nautical themes such as the Shell Fountain in the capitol, the sea god Neptune, and flying fish. It still produces commemorative silver and coins.
