Grand Bahama Island Currency
The simplicity of 1 = 1
The Bahamas' unit of currency, the Bahamian dollar ($B) is based on the U.S. dollar system, with one Bahamian dollar equaling one U.S. dollar. The Bahamian dollar is made up of 100 Bahamian cents, or pennies.
With the Bahamian and U.S. dollars on a par, or equivalent, 1 $B = 1 $US, you can choose to spend either Bahamian or U.S. dollars anywhere in the Bahamas. Many local businesses catering to tourists keep extra U.S. dollars on hand for the convenience of American visitors.
