|The Very Highest Quality Barbadian Coins...|
The first coinage ever issued specifically for Barbados was the 1788 penny token shown. It was issued by local plantation owner Sir Philip Gibbs. The obverse shows the head of presumably a black African slave, with the motto "I Serve" beneath.
The reverse design is a large pineapple with the inscription "BARBADOES PENNY 1788". Note the original Portuguese spelling of Barbadoes. A further issue dated 1792 had Neptune as its reverse types.
Barbados has issued its own coins since 1973.
