This coin was minted at York Stampings Ltd. Birmingham. The dies were cut by H.B. Sale Ltd., Birmingham while the blanks were prepared by Sheffield Smelting Co. Ltd. Pictured is the 306 ton barque, Alexandra, built and registered in Jersey in 1865. The sailing ship was owned by Messrs. Le Quesne, Pallot and Mallet of Jersey. In 1860 Jersey had 18 shipyards and in 1865 there were 34 vessels on the stocks, but by 1880 the industry had sharply declined because of the steamboat and the replacement of wooden vessels by iron.
