1989 Barbados Dollar

Do you have a Barbados coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Back to the vaults since I have been sick and unable to use or find money outside. One of the reasons I like this coin is that it is seven sided. Not the most popular shape for a coin but not uncommon. By giving a high denomination coin an odd shape you can keep it small and distinct.

Flying fish above ONE DOLLAR, above the fish are cool stylized clouds, I like small details like that.

Split 19 89 around coat of arms above BARBADOS
Normally these coins would weigh 9.90 grams but between 1988 and 1998 they reduced the weight. At 6.30 grams this thinner coin looks and works the same, just a bit lighter. For some reason they went back to the thicker and heavier planchet in 2000. I can only assume it had to do with metal values.

Here are the stats for this Barbados coin...
Type/Country: 1 Dollar / Barbados
Year: 1989
Mintage: Not known.
Metal: Copper-Nickel
Value: $0.75 in XF(Extra Fine although this one look less.)

Do you have a Barbadian coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

One Dollar barbados from 1973.. in perfect shape

Perfect (MS-70) is the highest grade and it would be about $30.00 or more.

Most likely if it is not in a protective capsule it is brilliant uncirculated (MS-63) at about $3.00.
