The 105th Meeting of the Monetary Council of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) has approved replacing the late Queen Elizabeth II’s image on the Eastern Caribbean currency.
A meeting Communiqué said the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines gathering also approved using the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU) logo on the EC currency subject to public consultation.
The Communiqué disclosed a consultation until December 31, 2023.
During that time, the public would receive an invitation to comment on replacing the Queen’s image with the ECCU logo and offer suggestions.
The Monetary Council meeting also agreed to make a final decision on the new image for the EC currency by February 2024.
Elizabeth II was Queen of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms from February 6, 1952 until she died in 2022
