Twelve Pence to a Shilling
King Edward VII

From the Shield on a 1909 One Twelfth of a Shilling


From the Shield on a 1909 One Twelfth of a Shilling

     There were only two coin issues for Jersey during the reign of Edward VII, both minted in 1909, the penultimate year of his reign.  The obverse has a bust of the King in full coronation regalia and the legend “EDWARD VII KING & EMPEROR.”  The bust on the obverse was modeled and engraved by George William De Saulles, the Royal Mint's Chief Engraver from 1893 to 1903. 

     The reverse of each coin features the same design as the one appeared during Queen Victoria's reign.  Although this basic design had been used for Jersey's badge of arms for centuries, it was only in 1907 that King Edward VII gave royal permission for the Crest to be used as Jersey's official motif.
