As a bailiwick, Guernsey embraces not only all ten parishes on the Island of Guernsey, but also the islands of Alderney and Sark – each with its own parliament – and the smaller islands of Herm, Jethou and Lihou. Although its defence is the responsibility of the United Kingdom, the Bailiwick is not part of the United Kingdom but rather a possession of the British Crown. It lies within the Common Travel Area of the British Isles and is not a member of the European Union, but has a special relationship with it, being treated as part of the European Community for the purposes of free trade in goods. Together, the Bailiwick of Guernsey and Bailiwick of Jersey form the geographical grouping known as the Channel Islands. Westernmost of the islands, and the second largest (after Jersey), forming it's own bailiwick. Best-known, perhaps, for a particular breed of cattle originating here. Area: 78 km2. Capital: Saint Peter Port.

Monetary standard 1830-1966: Guernsey Pound (GGP) = 4 Crowns = 20 Shillings = 240 pence = 1920 doubles. British Pound (GBP) coins and banknotes are also used along with Guernsey Pound.
Until the early 19th century, Guernsey used predominantly French currency. Coins of the French livre were legal tender until 1834, with French francs used until 1921. In 1830, Guernsey began production of copper coins denominated in doubles. The double was worth 1/80 of a French franc. The name "double" derived from the French "double deniers", although the value of the coin was equal to the liard (3 deniers piece) still circulating. Coins were issued in denominations of 1, 2, 4 and 8 doubles. The 8 double coin was a "Guernsey penny", with twelve to the "Guernsey shilling" (worth 1.2 francs). However, this shilling was not equal to the British shilling (worth 1.26 francs, as the exchange rate according to the respective gold standards was 25.22 francs = 1 pound sterling). Banknotes were also produced by the States of Guernsey from 1827, denominated in pounds. Between 1830 and 1956, Guernsey's four coin denominations, 1, 2, 4 and 8 doubles, all carried very similar designs, with the Island's arms and name (spelled "GUERNESEY", having additional "E" between N and SEY) on the obverse and the denomination and date on the reverse. In 1848, an ordinance was passed that the pound sterling should be legal tender at a value of £1 1s 3d (2040 doubles). This was rescinded two years later and French currency, supplemented by local issues, continued to circulate. In 1870, British coins were made legal tender, with the British shilling circulating at 12½ Guernsey pence. Bank of England notes became legal tender in 1873. In 1914, new banknotes appeared, some of which carried denominations in Guernsey shillings and francs.
After the First World War, the value of the franc began to fall relative to sterling. This caused Guernsey to adopt a pound equal to the pound sterling in 1921. For amounts below 1 shilling, the conversion rate of 1 Guernsey penny (8 doubles) = 1 British penny applied, allowing the Guernsey coins to continue to circulate. For amounts above 1 shilling, an exchange rate of 21 Guernsey shillings to the pound sterling was used, applying an approximation to the pre-war exchange rate of 25.2 francs = 1 pound sterling, rather than the exact rate of 25.22. This conversion increased the value of the double from 1⁄2016 to 1⁄1920 of a pound. In addition, the 8 double coins featured a wreath on both sides. These featured the Island's arms and name (now given as S'Ballivie Insule de Gernereve) on the obverse with the English name, the date and the Guernsey lily on the reverse. Since 1921, Guernsey has been in currency union with the United Kingdom and the Guernsey pound is not a separate currency but is a local issue of banknotes and coins denominated in pound sterling, in a similar way to the banknotes issued in Scotland and Northern Ireland. It can be exchanged at par with other sterling coinage and notes. For this reason, ISO 4217 does not include a separate currency code for the Guernsey pound, but where a distinct code is desired GGP is generally used. The WWI issues of banknotes were overstamped with the word "British" to indicate this change.  In 1956, new designs were introduced for the 4 and 8 doubles (the lower denominations were no longer issued).  New banknotes and British silver coinage circulated alongside the double coins, with 3 pence coins minted specially for Guernsey from 1956, with the same obverse and a reverse featuring the Guernsey cow.

It took place approximately 7 miles (11 kilometers) north-west of Hastings, close to the present-day town of Battle, East Sussex, and was a decisive Norman victory. William I (Williame I; c. 1028 – 09 September 1087), usually known as William the Conqueror and sometimes William the Bastard, was the first Norman King of England, reigning from 1066 until his death in 1087. The descendant of Viking raiders, he had been Duke of Normandy since 1035 under the style William II. After a long struggle to establish his power, by 1060 his hold on Normandy was secure, and he launched the Norman conquest of England in 1066. The rest of his life was marked by struggles to consolidate his hold over England and his continental lands and by difficulties with his eldest son.

Monetary standard: Currencies: Guernsey Pound (GGP) = 100 pence. British Pound (GBP) coins and banknotes are also used along with Guernsey Pound.
As in the U.K., 5 and 10 new pence coins were introduced in 1968, followed by 50 new pence coins in 1969, before decimalization took place in 1971 and the ½, 1 and 2 new pence coins were introduced. These coins were the same size and composition as the corresponding British coins. The word "new" was dropped in 1977. The 1 pound coin was introduced in 1981, two years before its introduction in the U.K., although the 20 pence and 2 pounds coins were introduced at the same time as in the U.K., 1982 and 1998, respectively. The thickness of the 1981 coin was significantly thinner than the modern version and the diameter also measured slightly less.
The first decimal issues continued with the same obverse as the last pre-decimal issues until 1985, when Raphael Maklouf's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II was added. Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of the Queen has appeared since 1998. Designs on the reverses of Guernsey's decimal coins.

Edward VII was nearly sixty years old before he became King. He restored much colour and ceremony to the monarchy and established the tradition of the Sovereign opening Parliament on a regular basis. His political influence and ambassadorial style of monarchy contributed to the Anglo-French Entente Cordiale on 08th April 1904. George V reigned during turbulent times but won the respect of the nation during First World War. The post-war saw industrial unrest and a worldwide economic depression but the celebration of the King's Silver Jubilee in 1935 brought welcome relief during a grave period. It was George V who changed the Royal name to Windsor and who initiated the King's speech at Christmas-time. Edward VIII enjoyed enormous popularity as Prince of Wales but his reign as King was short, abdicating in favour of his brother, Albert George, before he could be crowned. Consequently. although coins bearing his portrait had been prepared, none were ever issued. He was created Duke of Windsor and lived most of his life in France. George VI although unprepared for a heavy demands of Head of State, effectively led the nation during Second World War, promoting national unity and boosting morale with visits to the bomb-blitzed areas of London and the battlefields of Europe. With his wife Queen Elizabeth (known as Queen Mother), he also visited Guernsey when Channel Islands were finally liberated in 1945. Elizabeth II as the head of the one of the few constitutional monarchies in the world, the Queen presides over a nation hugely different from the post-Victorian world into which she was born. She has witnessed a world at war, worked with no fewer than ten Prime Ministers, and watched the transformation of the British Empire into a Commonwealth of independent nations representing over a quarter of the world's population. The present Royal family has visited Guernsey many times.

George III, is third of the Hanoverian monarchs. He was a popular King. He reigned, through, in difficult times: the American colonies gained their independence and the Napoleonic wards raged for twelve yeards before their final end at Waterloo in 1815. A debilitating mental illness became permanent in 1811 and Parliament  enacted the regency of the Prince of Wales, the future George IV. George IV is probably best remembered as a great patron of arts. During his reign the National Gallery was established, Regent Street and Regent's Park were developed, Buckingham Palace was renovated and he sponsored the restoration of Windsor Castle. But his most famous memorial is undoubtedly the exotic Royal Pavilion at Brighton. William IV affectionately known as the "Sailor King" having spent his early life in the navy. William IV was the third son of George III and came to the throne at the age of 64. He sanctioned the Great Reform Bill of 1832 and his reign saw the abolition of slavery throughout the Empire and the introduction of the first state aid for education. His two legitimate daughters died infancy and on his death the crown passed to his niece Victoria. Victoria's reign also known as Victorian era was one of great inventiveness and progress, of great social, political and domestic reform, and of remarkable peace and increasing prosperity. Queen Victoria's dominions had expanded to the four corners of the Earth so that her Empire was one on which, famously, "the sun never set". She was the first British monarch known to visit Guernsey and in her honour a tower was erected on the site of the old L'Hyvreuse windmill and named the Victoria Tower. Hers was the longest reign in British history dominating the nineteenth century and ending in the twentieth. As the Queen herself noted, "for the first time...there should be three direct Heirs as well as the Sovereign alive".

Sark
Sark (Sercq) Located midway between Guernsey and Jersey, and technically part of the Bailiwick of Guernsey. Sark remains the last truly feudal state in Europe as the laws till 2008, particularly relating to inheritance, have changed little since 1565. The first Seigneur, Helier de Carteret, Seigneur of St. Ouen on the Island of Jersey, colonised the island in 1565 with Queen Elizabeth's blessing and granted 40 islanders tenements. In the 17th century, Sark accumulated wealth through privateering (legalised piracy) and in 1834, silver was discovered on the island. By 1841, the population had grown to 790. However the mine turned into a financial disaster after becoming flooded and the Seigneur was forced to sell his fief to Mrs T. G. Collings, a direct ancestor of the present Seigneur. The Seigneur holds the island on lease from the Crown in perpetuity. Even to this day, the island is split up into 40 leaseholds but the population stands at around 550. Capital: La Seigneurie (residence of seigneur).
