The Bermuda Monetary Authority (BMA) has issued a new set of commemorative coins in celebration of its 50th Anniversary.

The new 50th Anniversary coin has a triangular design featuring a compass rose and the islands of Bermuda, and are available in denominations of $5 [1/20 oz.] gold, $2 [1 oz.] silver and $0.25 [1 oz.] cupronickel.

The BMA also released the Bermudiana commemorative coin, the first in a series of six coins.

In addition to gold, silver and cupronickel denominations, the Bermudiana commemorative coin has two colour versions, featuring the distinctive purple petals and yellow centre of Bermuda’s national flower.

Commemorative coins are popular collector’s items and are available at market prices from the Note & Coin Exhibit, BMA House, 43 Victoria Street, Hamilton, Monday to Friday, 9 am to 4 pm.

Established in 1969, the BMA regulates Bermuda’s financial services sector and issues Bermuda’s national currency.
