WIkipedia:
Morgan Lewis Windmill, St. Andrew, Barbados is the last sugar windmill to operate in Barbados. The mill stopped operating in 1947. In 1962 the mill was given to the Barbados National Trust by its owner Egbert L. Bannister for preservation as a museum.

The site was listed in the 1996 World Monuments Watch by the World Monuments Fund. Restoration began by the Barbados National Trust during the following summer. In 1997, financial support was provided by American Express for emergency repairs. The mill was dismantled for restoration, and reopened in 1999. With all its original working parts having been preserved intact, the sails were able to turn again after the project was completed, and cane was ground again after more than half a century.

It is one of only two working sugar windmills in the world today. During the 'crop' season, February through July, its sails are put in place and it operates one Sunday in each month, grinding cane and providing cane juice. Around the interior of the mill wall is a museum of sugar mill and plantation artifacts, and an exhibition of old photographs. Visitors can climb to the top of the mill.

In 2013 was first issued a new 2 Dollars banknote by the Central Bank of Barbados featuring the windmill on the reverse.

Barbados Coins:

The coat of arms of Barbados appears in the middle of each type's obverse. Such an illustration consists of a central escutcheon containing a depiction of a shortleaf fig (Ficus citrifolia) and two red birds of paradise (Caesalpinia pulcherrima), supported to the left by a dolphin fish (Coryphaena hippurus) and to the right by a brown pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis). A helmet and Barbadian fist holding two stalks of sugarcane surmount the escutcheon in the arms, while a ribbon bearing the national motto "PRIDE AND INDUSTRY" is displayed below. ... A small trident head is engraved below both pairs of digits.

Wikipedia
The coat of arms of Barbados was adopted on 14 February 1966 by royal warrant of Queen Elizabeth II. The coat of arms of Barbados was presented by the Queen to the President of the Senate, Sir Grey Massiah. Like other former British possessions in the Caribbean, the coat of arms has a helmet with a national symbol on top, and a shield beneath that is supported by two animals.

The arms were designed by Neville Connell, for many years curator of the Barbados Museum, with artistic assistance by Hilda Ince.
