    Default Coin categories for British islands

    "Regional issues" is an inadequate category for the coins of the separate money issuing authorities of the Isle of Man, Jersey & Guernsey.

    These are not "regions"

    Please add these categories to UK (I'm not sure they are really UK... it's complicated).

    and Yarnalong for craft patterns and some materials
    not to mention
    Lotzabitz -anything that doesn't belong in one of the other shops.

    Yes, it is complicated. The Isle of Man is not part of the UK and technically the UK is the property of the Channel Islands as the Queen retains the rather strange title of "Duke of Normandy" (nothing to do with the real Normandy any longer). However, few outside the UK would know this. The Isle of Man is a British Crown Dependency as are the Bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey; the smaller islands (loads of them, mostly uninhabited) belong to one or other of the two Bailiwicks.

    Crown Dependencies do not belong to the EU nor do they belong to the British Commonwealth. A few eyebrows were raised when Mann was allowed to compete in the Commonwealth games! (VBG).

    Interestingly, in the light of present day "hard done by" moans, De La Rue was originally a printer of a local paper in (I think) Jersey...or was it Guernsey? Ah well - it all serves to complicate life!

    But they are not properly served by "Regional issues"
