ECCB Launches EC$2 Commemorative Bank Note


The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) has launched its EC$2 commemorative polymer banknote commemorating the Bank’s 40th anniversary.

The EC$2 note showcases a portrait of the legendary Antigua and Barbuda cricketer Sir Vivian Richards, affectionately known as “The Master Blaster.”.

According to the ECCB, the EC$2 commemorative note marks the first time that a reflective silver ink, a gold iridescent ink, and a holographic blue foil have appeared together on a banknote.

The Bank said it represents an innovation in global currency design and security.

The EC$2 commemorative note will be available at commercial banks throughout the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU) from December 6.

The note is legal tender, so people can use it to pay for goods and services.

  1. Awa – things didn’t “start” at 5 when that note was introduced in the beginning and we still have our coins. Don’t allow your thoughts to run away with negativity every time something new is introduced- The time for that will come but not for this.

  2. @Ok, no wonder we keep electing the kind of leaders we have, I am not sure how someone could come up with a thought like Awa.

  3. I’m so glad for the EC $2.00 bill … less coins in my pocket/bag/wallet.
    @Awa … just where do you get off? The Eastern Caribbean Dollar is used in EIGHT Caribbean countries. Please do your homework.
