About the East Caribbean Dollar

The East Caribbean Dollar came into existence in 1965 and is the official currency of eight of nine members of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS).

Of the members, six are independent, these include: Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, St Lucia, St Kitts & Nevis, and Saint Vincent & The Grenadines.

The other two are British overseas territories: Anguilla and Montserrat. These states are all members of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union.

The British Virgin Island is the only OECS member not currently using the East Caribbean Dollar as its official currency; it uses United States Dollar (USD) instead.

The Eastern Caribbean Currency Authority issued banknotes in 1965 in denominations of 1, 5, 20 and 100 Dollars. The first banknote issued in the name of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank in 1985 were of the same denominations, with the addition of 10 Dollar notes. The last 1 Dollar notes were issued in 1989 and 50 Dollar notes were introduced in 1993.

  • The most popular East Caribbean Dollar exchange rate is the XCD to USD rate.
  • It is abbreviated with the Dollar sign $, or EC$ to distinguish it from other Dollar-denominated currencies.
