We Buy Old Bank Notes From St. Lucia
St. Lucia Currency Values and Bank Note Price Guide
Bank notes from The Government of St. Lucia are very rare. We are specifically referring to five shillings and ten shillings bank notes dated as 1st October 1920. These are rare for two reasons. They were printed almost one hundred years ago, so most have been redeemed and destroyed. Furthermore, tourism didn’t really exist in St. Lucia in 1920. The population was basically made up of farmers and the total population was under 50,000 people. A large supply of currency was not needed to meet the demand. Only a limited amount of bank notes were ever printed. You also have to remember that the environment in St. Lucia isn’t kind towards paper. The heat and storms have certainly destroyed many bank notes or at least put them in a condition as to impair their collectability. With that said, we would still love to see any paper money from St. Lucia. Please offer if you have something for sale.
1st October 1920 Government of St. Lucia Bank Notes
It is very rare for a country to issue bank notes for just one year. However, that is what we are looking at here. St. Lucia issued five shillings and ten shillings bank notes; both are dated as 1st October 1920. We don't have an image for the five shillings note. We were only able to find a specimen of the ten shillings notes. Translation, issued bank notes are extremely scarce. Survivors are few and far between and likely number around five total. The text on the notes references the capital of St. Lucia which is Castries. Each note has a portrait of King George V. This was a common trait of most British colonial paper money printed during that time period. Click on an image below to learn more about the value of each note.
