I pieced together a picture of the new set from the images on the website of the Central Bank of The Bahamas.

So which do you prefer: the new design series or the old? I find it impossible to choose. They are both beautiful sets.

Above is the country's coat of arms from British colonial days.





It inspired the design on the 1966 $5 coin.





And here is the old flag from the days of the British Empire.

The Bahamas have never issued a FAO-themed design. Above you see some designs that were suggested but never issued.
