Guernsey, 1981, one pound.  Guernsey lily.

Two species, Nerine sarniensis, which is scarlet, and Nerine bowdenii, which is pink, are known as the Guernsey lily.

Despite their common names (sarniensis means "from Guernsey"), neither is a true lily, nor do they originate from the Channel Isles. In fact, they are native to South Africa, though they are now naturalised in France, Madeira and the Azores.
