In 2017, Pobjoy Mint was planning to introduce bullion coins of the British Indian Ocean Territory with denominations in Royal. The coins were going to feature a Green Turtle. For reasons unknown, no such coins were ever issued.


Denominations and technical specifications of the coins for which Pobjoy Mint received permission.

Gibraltar, 1 royal, 1995.

Turtle designs are popular.

Gibraltar used the denomination of the "royal" in the 1990s.

I believe that was a Pobjoy Mint product.
Visit the website of The Royal Mint Museum.

3 years later, the Pobjoy Mint has today launched this bullion coin.
