Who prints Cayman’s money?

Where is our currency printed?


Ask Auntie, CNS Local Life, Caymanian statusAuntie’s answer: This is going to be a short and easy one since the information is available on the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA) website. I can tell you that Cayman’s notes are printed by De La Rue Printing, whose roots are in the UK but which now has offices around the world. The coins are minted by the British Royal Mint.

If you want to know any more about Cayman’s currency, you can check out these FAQs on the CIMA website.

    Why not make all money paper the same color green with the numbers standing out good, so people will only look for the numbers on the bills ? And not the colors.
