Barbados, 1989

Barbados is an independent island nation, part of the Lesser Antilles, located on the border between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The first telephone cards used were provided by Cable & Wireless and produced by GPT, all with the same panoramic image of the coastline. 4 values were denominated in Barbados dollar currency: B$ 4 (1CBDA code, circulation 1,000), B$ 10 (1CBDB, 9,000), B$ 20 (1CBDC, 11,000) and B$ 40 (1CBDD, 3,500). The B$ 4 value was included in the collector’s pack “Windward Islands” which contained 5 cards, one for each island that used the GPT / Cable & Wireless system.
