Description:

The Jersey Pound is the currency of Jersey. However, it is not a separate currency, only a variation of the United Kingdom's Sterling Pound, differentiated by Jersey's own unique series of banknotes and coins. The Jersey Pound is not legal tender in the UK but can be exchanged at par with the UK Pound.  

A square 1 Pound coin was issued in 1981 to mark the bicentenary of the Battle of Jersey and although rare, it remains in circulation today.

Origin:

Prior to the Jersey Pound the Jersey Livre was the local form of currency consisting of only French coinage. This was replaced in 1834 when the Pound Sterling was adopted as the sole legal tender. The Jersey Pound was decimalized in 1971 alongside the UK Pound.
