Our currency is sterling but as we like to do things a little differently over here Jersey also has its own money, the Jersey pound. You’ll usually be given Jersey money as change when you’re shopping, but British money can be freely used, and all major debit and credit cards are accepted. There are ATM machines in St. Helier and across the island.

The Jersey Pound

We have our own unique money, the Jersey pound. It’s the same currency and value as the British pound but with a slight Jersey quirk. You’ll find iconic landmarks such as Archirondel Tower, Seymour Tower and La Rocco Tower featured on our Jersey pound notes. It’s also one of the last few places you’ll see a one-pound note, and while the notes may look different, the value is still the same.
