Numismatic Coins

The Numismatic Coin Programme

The Numismatic Coin Programme was initiated with the issuance of two specimen Silver sets in 1966: a 7-coin and 9-coin set. These sets were designed by renowned British artist Arnold Machin, and were minted by the Royal Mint of London. Generally, proof/non-proof Gold and Silver commemorative coins are produced in collaboration with a promoter for sale to coin dealers and numismatists. In fact, many of the coin programmes commemorate events of both national and international significance, such as Bahamian Independence, the Olympic Games, the 500th Anniversary of Columbus' discovery of the New World, the World Cup; and have featured various wildlife themes. The numismatic programme is administered through the Banking Department.

Commemorative coins are available for purchase via the authorized dealers listed in this document (PDF)
