    $2.00 Jamaican Bill

    My friend stopped by last night.
    "Hey Mark,
    remember when we were in High School?

    Uh...yeah..??
    Well, Remember the class trip to Jamaica??
    Uh, no I said, I did not make that trip, remember??

    Anyway, My friend brought out 1 plastic baggie with three 2 dollar Jamaican Bills in it.

    "You can have them, maybe they are worth something" he said.

    Man, the IMF has screwed Jamaica so bad, these are worth about 2 cents.

    The exchange rate was 40 to 1 when I first started going.
    Now it's about 125 to 1.

    He was shocked.

    Negril was a bargain back in the 70's it was a very inexpensive vacation. Like Cap said the JA dollar was worth more than USD.

    I still have several $2J and a $1J bill left over form a long ago trip. I use them for book marks. Older folks will spot them and remark, "Mon, that's some really old money!" Money seemed a real pain in the arsenal back in the early 80's.
    We're all in this together and none of us is getting out alive.

    What is the smallest (in terms of value) Jamaican paper dollar bill, and the largest currently in circulation in JA.

    Thanks

    Negril is still a bargain. I can spend two weeks in Jamaica for the price of one week at any of the other Caribbean destination. I would probably spend more to come to Jamaica, I'm just really happy I don't have to.
