Central Bank of Curaçao and Sint Maarten

The Central Bank of Curaçao and Sint Maarten (Papiamento: Banko Sentral di Kòrsou i Sint Maarten, Dutch: Centrale Bank van Curaçao en Sint Maarten; previously the Bank of the Netherlands Antilles) is the central bank for the Netherlands Antillean guilder and administers the monetary policy of Curaçao and Sint Maarten. The bank dates to 1828 making it the oldest surviving central bank in the Americas.[1]

The building of the Bank of the Netherlands Antilles in 2010.

Prior to the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles in October 2010, the bank was responsible for monetary policy throughout the Netherlands Antilles. When the BES islands became subject to the central bank of the Netherlands, its present name was adopted.

The bank is expected to replace the Netherlands Antillean guilder with the Caribbean guilder in the coming years.

There has been controversy around CBCS, regarding corruption and nepotism[unreliable source?] most notably due to ex-CBCS president Emsley Tromp's connections to John Deuss and Hushang Ansary. Tromp was fired from his position in 2017.
