ECCB Commemorative Note

The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) has launched a $2 (EC) polymer banknote to commemorate its 40th anniversary featuring a portrait of the legendary Antiguan and West Indian cricketer, Sir Vivian Richards.

The issuance of the note forms part of the bank’s year-long celebration of its anniversary under the theme: ‘ECCB@40: A Year of Reflection, Celebration and Implementation’.

According to the bank, the $2 (EC) 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, representing an innovation in global currency design and security. 

The note is legal tender and will be available at commercial banks throughout the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union from 6 December 2023.
