  1. The States of Guernsey, of which Herm is a dependency, issue their own sterling coins and banknotes; see Guernsey pound.

Herm is the smallest of the Channel Islands that is open to the public.

Herm is only 1½ miles long. Cars are banned from the small island just like its Channel Island neighbour, Sark. Unlike Sark, bicycles are banned too. The sandy white beaches make Herm a walker's paradise.

Population: 60 (2002).
