One-cent coins can be redeemed at Central Bank

On Tuesday, Trinidad and Tobago’s one-cent coins were officially discontinued as legal tender.

The public was given until Monday to redeem their one-cent coins at any commercial bank.

However, for those still in possession of the coins, the Central Bank announced that they can be redeemed “indefinitely” at the Central Bank, Eric Williams Financial Complex, Independence Square, Port of Spain.

The opening hours for the Central Bank’s tellers are 8 am to 2 pm, Monday to Thursday and 8 am to 3 pm on Fridays.

For more information, you can contact the Central Bank via email at or call 621-2288, extension 2723 or 2023.
