Currency FAQs

Does the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority sell coins or notes issued from any other country?

Coins and notes minted/printed for the Cayman Islands, "the legal tender", are the only currency sold by the Authority.

Cayman's currency notes are printed by De La Rue Printing, while the coins are minted by the British Royal Mint.

The retail exchange rate used by CIMA is CI$1.00 = US$1.227

The Authority will redeem numismatic coins only at face value.

While older "A" and "B" series banknotes have been withdrawn, no denominations or issues of currency have been devalued. All notes and coins issued by the Cayman Islands Currency Board and the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority remain legal tender and can be redeemed for face value at any of the local commercial banks or at the Authority's offices, Ground Floor, Government Adminstration Building, George Town.

While the Authority does not accept credit cards or personal cheques, payment may be made by cash, wire transfers, drafts drawn on local commercial banks or International Money Orders/drafts. (There is a 15-day processing period for IMO's and international drafts).

The Authority operates a retail window for collector items only. Local commercial banks provide the public with Foreign Exchange Services.

Damaged Cayman Islands notes and coins are redeemed through local commercial banks or at the Authority's offices, Ground Floor, Government Administration Building, George Town. They can also be mailed to the Authority. Our address and location are listed in the 'About Us' section of this website. Please Watch here: Contact Us.
