A rich, heavy, stodgy Christmas pudding.   :-X  I wonder how many heart attacks those things are responsible for.

Gibraltar will also issue a 2016-dated Christmas coin. They will use the design that they also used on the 2006 coin which depicts a christmas tree. The coin will be available in February.

Gibraltar does this kind of 'recycling of designs' frequently, see here. ;)

Caution. The low-hanging fruits are still there maybe for a reason.

February 19 but the Christmas coins of Gibraltar have not yet been issued. I wonder why Tower Mint bid on the currency tender of the Isle of Man if they can't even handle such small orders for Christmas coins (last year they were also issued months after Christmas).

Is that a proof version? Looks like a proof.

It is just UNC. If coins are being minted on a slow old press they may get this proof appearance. No proof or prooflike coins will be minted of this coin.

I have to get back to this message. I was today informed  that plans to mint prooflike Christmas 50p coins are still under consideration. If it will happen, these will be issued within 1 month. The piece in the photo above is of UNC quality.
