Financial Stability Issues The theme for the Bank's operations in 2003 is “Stability
as a precondition for Growth and Development ”. The chief
areas of focus are the maintenance of a stable exchange rate
and a strong financial system. Various information tools have
been developed about the issues on which the region’s
financial stability hinges.
Know Your Notes (available soon on our website)
In an effort to combat the
spread of counterfeit notes and to deter prospective counterfeiters,
the Bank has developed a “Know Your Notes”
Video, as well as brochures and posters detailing the
of the Eastern Caribbean Bank Notes. These tools have
been distributed widely throughout the ECCU. The videos
are aired from time to time by the commercial banks in
their banking halls, as well as by the television stations
in each island. Copies are available on loan to groups
and organisations on request.
The New Round Coin Family (available soon on our website)
2002, the Bank issued new round coins. In an effort to
facilitate recognition and proper use of the coins, the
ECCB has developed a video infomercial, detailing the
features of the coins.
