The design series of 2014 did not include a penny or two pence coin. In the UK, there is already some debate as to the usefulness of these coins, and whether they should be phased out.

In 2017, Gibraltar issued a special series of circulating coins for the 50th anniversary of the referendum that was held in 1967. In the referendum, Gibraltarian citizens were asked if they wanted to stay under British sovereignty or become under Spanish sovereignty. 99% of the people who casted their vote voted to remain British. Interestingly the 1p and 2p coins are included in the series. These denominations were not included in the standard circulating coin series that was being issued since 2014. For the first time since 2003, the circulation coins of Gibraltar were again produced at Pobjoy Mint. A portrait that is exclusive to Pobjoy Mint can be seen on the obverse of the coins. On their reverses the coat of arms of Gibraltar is depicted.

The 20 pence coin. It is the only denomination in the series that also depicts the denomination in figures.
