TREASURY BILLS

Treasury Bills are short-term discount securities, denominated in Solomon Dollars and redeemable at face value on maturity.  They can be used as a tool to influence liquidity in the financial system – the number of Treasury bills sold affects the commercial banks’ free liquidity and reserve money. Treasury Bills are issued by tender. The Central Bank of the Solomon Islands is the Government’s agent responsible for tendering and administering Treasury Bills.

Refer to the Solomon Islands Government, Treasury Bills Prospectus for further information.
