Two COMPLETELY different places.
The Isle of Jersey consist of only 91,600 people and it's only a 46 square mile Island.

New Jersey consist of 8.6 million people and it's 8,729 square miles.

Culturally, New Jersey has made itself one of the wealthiest and most educated states while The Jersey Isle on the other hand, is only known for being the reason NJ has it's name.

I guess some people are just too ignorant to figure this out. "Jersey-tude"

I think I have a coin from old Jersey, but maybe it's from Guernsey.

Jersey was apparently occupied by the Nazis in WWII and some were sent to concentration camps. It also has its own form of the Norman language, although most of them no longer speak it. Lastly it is known for a kind of potato and, like other Channel Islands I believe, not having a Value-Added-Tax.
