INSIGHT: The little-known story of Jersey's banknotes

Thursday 29 September 2022


What is the story behind our banknotes? And how does our money make us more money? Express explores the little-known history of the island's banknotes.

It begins in 1941, when the States of Jersey first started to issue its own notes after most of the silver coins circulating in the island disappeared as the occupying forces took them as souvenirs. However, when the German Occupation ended in 1945, the States stopped issuing notes.
