Jersey Coins and Banknotes

no image no image
Celebrating 25 years of Numismatic Excellence!
     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.

"Some Notes and Observations Concerning The Pre-decimal Coins and Tokens From the Island of Jersey"

This is a revision of my earlier 2008 work. This version is currently a work in progress with 420 pages (120 MB).

Updated on March 22, 2022.
     "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
     In 1984, A.L.T. McCammon published his book, Currencies of the Anglo Norman Isles, detailing the coins and currencies of the Channel Islands. Now 40 years later, with the aid of newer technology, a clearer picture on this subject can now be readily available for the numismatist. The purpose of this work is to document and illustrate the coins and their die varieties from the Island of Jersey. Die varieties have been carefully checked and verified. Note that a bibliography is included at the end of each section for reference and further research. Also note that in describing the coins, references are made to “J” and “KM” numbers. The KM numbers are from Krause-Mishler Standard Catalog of World Coins, and identify the coins by type. Meanwhile, the J numbers are from McCammon and identify individual coins in the series. Both references are used by many numismatists.

     I must acknowledge my fellow numismatist Phil Warrington for his extensive work on the die types. For as long as I can remember, Phil has provided discussions, insights, and shared information with me on this topic. Many items of interest on this site is due to his understanding and help.
