Well, they have to keep the collectors happy. They still haven't done sideways, upside down, back to front, invisible ink.

Yesterday there has been found a new 1 pound coin in circulation. The coin is dated 2014 and may be part of a new standard series.
The government of Gibraltar has never published that they would issue a new 1 pound coin nor can I find anything about it on other numismatic websites. The coin depicts a dragon tree which grow in the Botanic gardens of Gibraltar.
I would like to thank Mr. Schön and <k> for sharing their interesting view with me about this piece.

Yemen, 20 rials, 2004.  Bimetallic. A steel version of the coin was issued in 2006.





The Dragon Blood Tree (Dracaena cinnabari) is a Dragon Tree unique to Socotra Island, Yemen. This evergreen species is named after its dark red resin, which is known as "dragon's blood".

yup, received same picture in my inbox this morning.

The notice to issue circulating coins for 2014 was only issued on 12th Dec, so these must be quite new.  I hope I'm wrong - but I think this is part of the rolling refreshment of the Gibraltar designs.

Congratulations. Great find. Where did you find it?
Thanks for reporting.

Can we have the source of the notice?

As far as I can tell the piece of legislation is 2014/243 - but I cannot find it on line.
Also, expect the 2014 dated 5p and 10p issues to be in plated steel.

That is an interesting news.
Normally, Gibraltar does not issue circulation coins every year.

Are they going to be minted by Pobjoy again?

The Philatelic Bureau of Gibraltar confirmed that a new legal tender 1 pound coin has been issued.
For now this was the only new coin issued, other denominations will follow later this year.

That is an interesting news.

These are being minted at the Tower Mint. (Pobjoy Mint wouldn't be likely as the batch marks are missing on the coin).

Every denomination (1p to £2) has been issued for circulation 2004-2013 (and not just in sets!)

Either you are very small or have big eyes to read such a thing, Pabitra.  :D  What does the text actually say?

No mention of the 1p or 2p though.
