Leeward Islands Currency Values and Bank Note Price Guide
The Leeward Islands is a collective name for several Caribbean countries like Antigua, St. Kitts, Anguilla, and Montserrat among many others. The British government issued bank notes for use by the islands. These notes are dated as 1st January 1921. We know for sure that five shillings and ten shillings bank notes were printed. A two shillings sixpence denomination may also exist. All of these notes are very rare, but not all together unavailable. Examples are on the market from time to time. These were printed a long time ago and in small quantities. Most have been destroyed or are now held in long term collections. Our guide has pictures and prices for each denomination. Please contact us if you would like a free appraisal. We are also very interested buyers.

The only issued note we are showing is for the ten shillings denomination and it happens to be the serial number 1 example. Issued bank notes from The Leeward Islands are just plain rare. Not many of these bank notes were printed, and of course only a small percentage have survived today. Each note has a portrait of George V and references the issue location of Antigua.
