Eastern Caribbean Dollar

In 1965 the The East Caribbean dollar replaced the British West Indies dollar as the legal currency for all members of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States(OECS).

There are nine members of the Eastern Caribbean States with all except one (the British Virgin Islands) using this currency.

The East Caribbean dollar (sign: $; code: XCD) is normally abbreviated with the dollar sign $ or, alternatively, EC$ to distinguish it from other dollar valued currencies.

The EC$ is made up of 100 cents. It has been pegged to the United States dollar since 1976 and the exchange rate is US$1 = EC$2.70.

Six of the islands using the EC$ are independent states. They are Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. The other two are the British overseas territories, Anguilla and Montserrat.
