  • Between 1891 and 1916, four-cent coins were issued specifically for "British Guiana and the West Indies," and between 1917 and 1945 for "British Guiana".
  • In 1916, paper money was first issued by the Government of British Guiana, in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 20 and 100 dollars.
  • Guyana gained independence from United Kingdom on May 26, 1966, and became a republic on February 23, 1970.
  • Banknotes were introduced in 1966 in denominations of 1, 5, 10 and 20 Guyanese Dollars. A second series was issued between 1989 and 1992 in denominations of $20, 100 and 500. The 1996-1999 series added a $1,000 bill. New $100 and $1,000 bills were issued in 2005 with added safety features.
