Saltspring Island, British Columbia
A unique island – unique people – a unique currency
Salt Spring Dollars are a community currency issued by the Salt Spring Island Monetary Foundation
on our island of 10,000 residents. It has nearly universal acceptance
so tourists and locals can all enjoy using this novel and beautiful money.
Salt Spring Dollars help drive local commerce, tourism and island pride. Our currency
features beautful artwork by local artists including Robert Bateman, Carol Evans, Jill Louise
Campbell, Carol Haigh, and Warren Langley. Our $$50 silver coin was designed by Thomas McPhee
and crafted at the nearby Lasqueti Mint..
