Barbados was the fourth English speaking nation in the West Indies to achieve independence from the United Kingdom, after Jamaica (6.8.1962), Trinidad and Tobago (31.8.1962) and British Guiana (now Guyana 26.5.1966).
Barbados dollar is pegged to the United States Dollar at B$1 = US$0.50. Obviously this note is worth US$25.00 at face value.
The note is dated 30.11.2016 and was released into circulation on 21.11.2016. The serial number for this issue commenced with prefix J30 with number 100001 as the first note. The note that I have posted here is considered as low serial numbered note. I wonder if the center bank retains any of their notes for their archive purposes. Even if they do, I believe it's not many and I have my reasons to say that.
