Catalog & market information for bank notes issued by Government of the Leeward Islands

The Leeward Islands are a group of islands in the West Indies. They are the northern islands of the Lesser Antilles chain. As a group they start east of Puerto Rico and reach southward to Dominica. They are situated where the northeastern Caribbean Sea meets the western Atlantic Ocean. The more southerly part of the Lesser Antilles chain is called the Windward Islands. The British Leeward Islands was a British colony existing between 1833 and 1960, and consisting of Antigua, Barbuda, the British Virgin Islands, Montserrat, Saint Kitts, Nevis, Anguilla and (to 1940) Dominica. The previous colony of the Leeward Islands had existed since 1671, but in 1816 it was divided in two, with Antigua, Barbuda and Montserrat in one colony, and Saint Christopher, Nevis, Anguilla, and the Virgin Islands in another. The British Leeward Islands was reformed in 1833, with the governor of Antigua serving as governor until 1871. The colony became known as the Federal Colony of the Leeward Islands from 1871 to 1956, and the Territory of the Leeward Islands from 1956 to 1960. In 1921, the British colonies in the West Indies were governed collectively as the Leeward Islands, and the Government of the Leeward Islands (GOV) issued its own banknotes, similar in design to those from Saint Lucia.
