The coin was commissioned in commemoration of the 25th Anniversary of the Central Bank of Barbados, the nation’s sole monetary authority.
The obverse features the logo of the Central Bank of Barbados – the heraldic dolphin – on the reverse.
The reverse features Barbados’ Coat of Arms . The central element of this official emblem is a shield supported by a dolphin and a pelican, symbols of the island’s fishing industry. Two Pride of Barbados (Caesalpinia pulcherrima) flowers and one of the island’s Bearded Fig Trees (ficus Citrifolia) are depicted on the shield. Above the shied is a crest consisting of a raised forearm holding crossed sugar cane stalks above a helmet and mantling. A ribbon bears the inscription PRIDE AND INDUSTRY, the national motto.
