Jamaican Money Museum Tour And Jamaica Economy Lecture

The aim of this field trip is to educate students on the Jamaica economic system. First you will attend a lecture covering the Jamaican economy history where you will learn about the bartering system originally used by the Tainos, the original inhabitants of the island before the Spanish settled and colonized it and introduced their own currency. You will also learn about the currency that the British introduced when they overtook the island, and the development of Jamaica’s own currency.


In addition you will also learn about the state of Jamaica economy today, and the projections for its future. After your lecture is complete you will visit the Bank of Jamaica to begin our guided tour of the Jamaica Money Museum, where you will see a wide range of currency from around the world and learn about the art of making coins and bank notes, and much more.
