The East Caribbean dollar was established in 1965 as the official currency of the full seven members of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States; Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. The first series from 1965 featured Pietro Annigoni’s oil painting from 1956 and was engraved by De La Rue; Queen Elizabeth is shown wearing the regalia of the Order of the Garter in this banknote. This first series was issued under the East Caribbean Currency Authority. In 1985 the second series of banknotes were issued by the East Caribbean Central Bank and featured the portrait by Peter Grugeon. Queen Elizabeth II is wearing the Grand Duchess Vladimir’s Tiara during her Silver Jubilee. In 2019 a new polymer banknote series was released but it retained the same portrait from 1985.
