One from Every Country #12: Barbados

Next up on the list of countries is Barbados.
One of the things I like about the Caribbean countries' coinages is that they have a lot of wildlife on the coins, not even counting the the coat of arms on many issues. This one features a sea gull, and I love sea gulls. To me, summer isn't summer unless I hear sea gulls calling.

I have 10 coins from Barbados in my collection ranging in age from 1980 to 2009. This one came as part of a three-pound sack of world coins I bought on ebay back in 2011. I chose it as the sample coin for the country simply for the seagull.

  1. That is so cool! And if you want to feel summery...just go sit in the parking lot of McDonald's...lots of gulls there. :)
