|Coin||Gold Half Gram 2021 American Eagle|
The Barbadian Dollar has been the currency of Barbados since 1973, when it replaced the Eastern Caribbean Dollar. It is normally abbreviated with the dollar sign $, or alternatively BBD $ to distinguish it from other dollar-denominated currencies.
Apart from the regular circulating coinage, the country has also authorised some foreign mints to issue commemorative and bullion coins under its jurisdiction. Some of these are in the half gram of gold mini-coin format.
This mini gold coin is dedicated to the 35th Anniversary of the American Eagle bullion coin series.
