    Salt Spring Island is located in British Columbia and boasts a large population of artists, sculptors, and musicians. A non-profit group in the community began issuing Salt Spring Dollars in 2001 as a means to help keep money within the community and also encourage tourism. The colorful dollars with attractive designs are accepted as legal tender by most of the local merchants and are accepted at par with Canadian dollars at the three national bank branches and credit union. The symbol $$ consists of two "S"s and two "I"s representing "Salt Spring Island Issued." The 2001 dollars all have "expiry" dates, but the policy was changed due to community response. Choice Crisp Uncirculated. (Total: 5 notes)
