Jersey Coins and Banknotes

By H.K. Fears



     Jersey, an island in the English Channel, has unique links with England.   Since the reign of King John, the island has "peculiar" privileges obtained through a series of royal charters which has resulted in Jersey being officially known in the constitutional terms as "A Peculiar of the Crown".  In 1204, the King lost his lands in Normandy to the French but, Jersey and the other Channel Islands, which were also part of the Duchy of Normandy, sided with King John and Jersey has remained predominantly royalist since that time. 
     These pages are provided for information about Jersey coins and banknotes for numismatists, collectors, and others who have an interest in the currency of the States of Jersey.  I hope you learn something about Jersey's "peculiar" numismatic history and come back soon. 

     "Numismatics, like some aspects of astronomy and natural history, remains a branch of learning in which the amateur can still do valuable work, and it is on the great collecting public, or rather on that part of which is interested in the subject at a scientific level, that the progress of numismatic science largely depends." Philip Grierson - Professor of Numismatics, University of Cambridge
