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 a Lobster, (Homarus Vulcaris). The lobster is found along the rocky coast and in the seas around Jersey. It is a principal quarry of the local fisherman, who have a large export trade. A Jersey law of 1938 (Loi sur la Pêche et la Vente de Poisson) prescribes the minimum size of lobster which can be taken.
