This coin is much larger and heavier than the dollar made from 1988-2005.
Although famous for their ability to fly, flying fish actually glide. They swim rapidly close to the surface of the water before leaping above it and spreading their fins. They use these fins and the lower portion of their tail to propel themselves at speeds in excess of 55 kilometers per hour for distances as great as 100 meters.
Flying fish were once extremely plentiful in Barbados, but as a result of migration and stock depletion, the numbers have declined. However, they still account for a significant percentage of the annual fish catch, and continue to be enjoyed as a Barbadian delicacy, including as part of Barbados’ national dish: flying fish and cou cou.
