Morgan Lewis Windmill, St. Andrew, Barbados | Source: Wikipedia
The Morgan Lewis Windmill is one of only two functional windmills in the Caribbean. It was built in 1727 and in operation until 1945, the mill was used to grind sugar cane and could deliver up to 1,500 gallons of cane juice to the boiling house daily.

After 1945, when the mill stopped operating, it fell into disrepair and was at one time listed among the world's most endangered heritage sites. In 1996, the Barbados National Trust embarked on a restoration project and returned the mill to its original working specifications.

Grinding is done at Morgan Lewis every second Sunday between the months of January and April, and the mill and its grounds are open for tours.
(From Central Bank of Barbados)

Die 2 - motto 'PRIDE AND INDUSTRY' thin, all the rest details thick and closer to each other, right numerals wider then trident.


Reverse

Die B - a legend with the denomination and all details thick and closer to centre.
