It appeared on the issued 50 pence coin, not the 2 pence coin.

The watch tower at Le Hocq was originally intended for the 50 pence.

More finds to follow. Jersey's first full decimal set, issued in 1971, showed the coat of arms on the reverse. In 1982 the 20p coin was introduced. This featured a lighthouse, but the rest of the coins retained the coat of arms. In 1983 a full new design series was issued, featuring the island's landmarks. The 20p was altered slightly, so that the date appeared on the obverse instead of the reverse.

It's clear from the following sketches that Jersey had intended, or hoped, to release the full new design series in 1982. The issued designs were by Royal Mint artist Robert Lowe. I assume, but do not know, since the documents do not say so, that he also produced the sketches.

"1982" sketches. The final decisions as to which landmark which appear on which denomination had clearly not been finalised.

Note the ungrammatical "ONE PENCE".

The issued 10 pence coin.



Originally there was going to be a half penny. However, the denomination was at the end of its days. The same design is also shown on a penny. Eventually a modified version of the design appeared on the 10p.

Jersey 1p sketch  - La Hougue Bie.  This design did not appear on any of the issued coins. "ONE PENCE" is of course ungrammatical.

Jersey 5p sketch - not adopted - a German observation post. This stylish structure was built by the Nazis, when they occupied the island during World War 2.
