The East Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) has announced that it will be issuing a circulating commemorative coin painted with different colours.
The press release from the Central Bank has confirmed that the new coin will be issued this month, October 2015, to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Eastern Caribbean Currency Authority (ECCA) banknotes and the 32nd Anniversary of the ECCB.
A portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is displayed on the obverse of the coin, and the reverse includes some of the features of the ECCA one dollar banknote which is no longer in circulation.
The coin has been produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, which began minting coins for the ECCB five years ago. The colours of the coin were painted using a high-speed pad printing solution, developed by the Royal Canadian Mint and technology partner Teca-Print.
