Description

During the nineteenth century Jersey enjoyed great economic expansion, largely due to the important influence of the shipbuilding industry. To salute this age-old craft the Royal Mint was commissioned to strike a series of seven one Pound coins. Six of the coins depict locally built vessels while a seventh bears a representation of the official seal of the Bailiwick in use from 1844 to 1870. The choice of ships was determined to show the great diversity of ship building in the States.

 

They are:

  • the Tickler (a schooner),
  • the Percy Douglas (a vintage full rigged ship),
  • the Hebe (a brig),
  • the Bailiwick Seal,
  • the Gemini (a barque),
  • the Century (a brigantine), and
  • the Resolute (a top sail schooner)
