Will Queen’s Face be Removed from Belize Dollar?

The Queen will undoubtedly leave an undeniable legacy and she will forever be remembered as the longest reigning Monarch, recently celebrating her platinum jubilee. And while the Queen was known for her unquestionable dedication to the public, she will also be remembered as the person whose face is on our money. So the media asked Education Minister Francis Fonseca if it is time to remove the queen from the Belize dollar. Here is how he responded. 

Francis Fonseca, Minister of Education, Culture, E-Governance, Science & Technology: “We have a unique opportunity coming up which we have launched. So we have a unique opportunity in Belize, as a people, to define how we want ths country to be governed moving forward and the governance structures that exist. So that allows us to look at constitutional reform. To look at all the structures of governance in this country, including whether we want to continue with the parliamentary system, whether we want to keep the monarch as the Head of State. All of those things are questions for the Belizean people. They will have to ultimately decide that.”
