Bank Of Bermuda
Now HSBC Bank Bermuda Limited
Bank of Bermuda, now the Head Office of the HSBC Bank Bermuda Limited, is one of the few high-rise buildings in Hamilton as most of the town structures are less than three stories in height. The Head Office of the bank is located on Front Street near the ferry terminal. Inside the head office the bank has a collection of rare and valuable coins dating back to historical times. There is a 1887 made 5-pound coin which caused a lot of anxiety among the British once. Why so?
The coin depicted queen Victoria wearing a crown. The crown on the coin was so small, many thought that the queen looked ridiculous with such crown on her head. And that created a big confusion and anxiety among the people of Bermuda. Within the local community, the bank provides services such as Savings and Checking accounts, Loans and Mortgages, ATM and Debit card facilities, Portfolio and financial planning services and such.
For foreign investors and customers, it offers Commercial Banking, Asset Management, Global Fund Services, Corporate, Investment Banking and Markets activities. Since 2004, the Bank of Bermuda has become part of the HSBC group.

Hello, Some years ago, I think it was in 1988, I enjoyed seeing E. Radovan bell coin collection at the Bank of Bermuda. I know it is no longer on display there, as I tried to see it again this year. Is it displayed somewhere else now? I especially wanted to view the 1937 Great Britain Threepence. Regards,

Hi, I don't think they are any longer on display in the island.
