The States of Guernesy have issued a 20-pound (US$31) banknote to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. The notes include the prefix QE60, a commemorative laurel wreath, and additional wording. The back remains the same as the preceding regular issue of this denomination. A total of 150,000 of the notes have been issued and will circulate alongside the current £20 note. Uncirculated notes can be purchased through the Guernsey Philatelic Bureau at Envoy House (email@example.com). The notes have been designed and produced by De La Rue Currency, a company started by Guernseyman Thomas De La Rue in the 19th Century.

Pam West, a dealer who specializes in British notes, sends word that Guernsey has issued a £20 (US$32) with the signature of Bethan Haines as CHIEF ACCOUNTANT. The first prefix is C900001. The note is like Pick 58, but the wording on the back is darker, the righthand underprint is moved 5 mm to the right. The note has a new 1.4-mm StarDust windowed security thread and a new watermark with a larger portrait which has more contrast. Also there are Cornerstone watermarks in the four corners. The Guernsey Fresian is depicted as a shape in silver foil, overprinted with Intaglio ink. The undated note bears a new imprint of DE LA RUE. According to visitor Kai, this note was introduced 04.06.2009.
