CoinSilver Ounce 2019 Flying Fish

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. These are typically in standard bullion sizes, such as one ounce of silver (abbreviated as 1 oz Ag, where "Ag" comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum).

The 2019 Barbados Flying Fish 1oz Silver Coin is part of a bullion coin series by the Scottsdale Mint.

Exocoetidae is a genus of marine fish, commonly known as a flying fish. They are found in all oceans of the world, but are most commonly found in warm tropical and subtropical waters. There are 64 species of flying fish, marked for their extended fins and enhanced rigidity which enable the fish to exit the ocean and glide for great distances. The longest recorded "flight" of a flying fish was for 45 seconds! They have been known to glide for distances of up to 400 metres by using updrafts from wind and waves while travelling at speeds of up to 70 km/h. This remarkable and unique fish is part of the national dish of Barbados which once saw massive schools around their island.

Above the shield is a helmet, above which the hand of a Bajan holding two crossed pieces of sugar cane symbolic of the sugar industry. On a ribbon below, the motto PRIDE AND INDUSTRY.

Around above, the name of the country: BARBADOS. Around below, the face value ONE DOLLAR.
