The Bahamas' unit of currency is the Bahamian dollar ($B) which is based on the U.S. dollar. One Bahamian dollar equals 100 Bahamian cents (pennies). As the Bahamian and U.S. dollars are equivalent (1 $B = 1 $US), residents or visitors may spend either Bahamian or U.S. dollars in the Bahamas, though outside the Bahamas, Bahamian money is not too valuable (trading at times at nearly half its face value), except as a popular collector item, so make sure to get rid of all your Bahamian dollars before you leave. (To understand more about money read this article on the gold standard. If the Bahamian politicians were honest -- and rational -- enough to implement such a program, the Bahamian dollar would be worth 20 times that of the U.S. dollar within 5 to 7 years.) Security features on Bahamas notes include: * Watermark of the Spanish Galleon: All Banknotes * Security threads: All Banknotes * See-through feature of the Sand dollar: All Banknotes * Hologram: Bahamas $100 banknotes only * Series: All banknotes (except B$3 banknotes) * Foil: $10, $20, $50 100% * cotton banknote paper: All banknotes * Security fibres fluorescent green or yellow: All banknotes * Latent image: All banknotes (except B$3 banknotes) Bahamian dollar banknotes are printed by De la Rue, Basingstoke, Hampshire, England, while coins are minted by the Royal Canadian Mint, which is located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
