The dollar is the official currency in Barbados since 1935, when the Barbadian government-issued paper money denominated in dollars. This currency replaced the East Caribbean dollar, and notes were introduced in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 20 and 100 dollars. The 1 dollar was discontinued, and the 2 dollars note introduced in 1980, followed by a 50 dollars note in 1989. A new notes design was issued in 2013.
Currently are circulating banknotes with denominations of 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 dollars.
