Facts about the currency

  • Due to the islands’ combination of colonial powers (mostly French, Spanish and British), Trinidad and Tobago’s currency system once consisted of a bit of everything. Occupants used a combination of Spanish, Mexican, Portuguese and French currencies. Because this combination was so diverse and chaotic, they’d also use bartering (namely sugar) to make payments.
  • Trinidad and Tobago introduced its own dollar in 1964. Between 1964 and 1968, the Trinidad and Tobago dollar was used in Grenada until it re-joined the common currency arrangements of the East Caribbean dollar.
