Designs wanted for new banknotes

Jersey banknotes
Jersey banknotes have remained unchanged for 18 years

New bank notes could be issued in Jersey soon and islanders are being asked to help design them.

It has been 18 years since the island redesigned its currency.

Now Treasury Minister Philip Ozouf is asking people to join a panel to advise him on the notes which he said should reflect Jersey's character.

The current notes depict the Queen on the front and landmarks of Jersey or incidents in Jersey history on the reverse. The watermark is a Jersey cow.
