Jersey 50 pence.

Finally, a sketch of the issued 50 pence coin. 

Jersey is well worth a visit, as you can see from these landmarks.

Guernsey is just as fascinating, and also smaller but prettier, IMO.

Great research. Splendid thread. Thank you.

It is probably my bad eyesight, but I am having trouble with the perspective of the design on the 10p. Beaucoup less so with the variant with the jug in the foreground. The large horizontal rock seems to float in the air midway to the foreground. Worse, my brain insists that the rock is actually a chopped-off outstretched hand.

Perhaps the perspective, as seen on the coin design, isn't great. But then the structure itself isn't perfect.
