St. Lucia, located between St. Vincent and Martinique, was first discovered by Colombus in 1502. It changed hands many times between the French and the British until 1814 when it became permanently British. St. Lucia was a member of the Windward Islands federation 1838-1885, the West Indies federation 1958-1962. In 1967, St. Lucia obtained a grand autonomy "Statehood" which limited relations with Great Britain to foreign affairs and defense. It became an independent republic in 1979. For later currency issues see British Caribbean Territories (1950-1964) and East Caribbean States (1965-present). For a more detailed country profile, see CIA World Factbook on St. Lucia.
