Description

The pound is the official currency of Guernsey since 1921 when it replaced the French livre, and the country became part of the monetary union with the United Kingdom. The Guernsey pound is not a separate currency but a local issue of sterling-denominated notes and coins. The first pound notes were issued in 1924 with a denomination of 10 shillings. During the German occupation in 1941, notes were introduced in denominations of 6 pence, 1 shilling, 3 pence, 2 shillings, 6 pence and 5 shillings. After the liberation in 1945, the £5 notes were introduced, followed by £10 in 1975, £20 in 1980 and £50 in 1994. The official currency symbol: £/p (pre-decimal).

The 5 Jersey pounds commemorative note front design features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II (Queen of the United Kingdom and 15 other commonwealth realms), on a background with stylized royal patterns, the National Coat of Arms (Seal of Guernsey) within a coin surrounded by laurel branches, an illustration of the Town Church located in St Peter Port (Capital city), a branch of Guernsey lilies and a sketch of a fishing boat. The reverse of the note presents a view of Fort Grey (cup and saucer) located in Rocquaine Bay in Saint Peter, which is a Martello defensive tower used in the 19th century, and an illustration of the Les Hanois lighthouse, which was built between 1860 and 1862 and is located at Le Biseau (Le Bisé), part of the Les Hanois reef. Both figures are accompanied by a resplendent sun whose rays pass through the drawings, a pink rose, and a fishing boat sketch. This note is part of the 2000 commemorative series “Year 2000 – Millennium”. Its color is dark brown and purple on a multicolor underprint.
