Jersey Pound Currency:
Pound is the official currency of Jersey (also sometimes referred to as Bailiwick of Jersey), a British Crown dependency located near the north coast of Normandy, France. Jersey is the largest among the Channel Islands. During the war of 1066, most part of Duchy of Normandy was seized by France and the island of Jersey was retained with the British crown. Jersey pound is pegged at par with pound sterling and it is also denoted by the symbol £. Jersey pound is interchangeable at par with British pound sterling and coinage. However, Jersey pound is not legal tender in England but its acceptability as legal currency is left to the discretion of people involved in monetary transactions.
