Gibraltar: New circulating coins Island Games 2019
« on: November 29, 2019, 01:23:38 PM »
From July 6 up until July 12 the Island Games were held in Gibraltar.

Gibraltar Magazine wrote on 1 March 2019: "commemorative stamps and coins are being minted, as a collectable souvenir, and to circulate well after the Games are over."

The organisation wrote on 21 March 2019: "We are hoping to get permission from the Royal Mint to produce some coins for the games."

Why would they need permission from the Royal Mint?  They don’t even produce Gibraltar coins?

That is indeed an obvious question.

The 2019-dated standard circulating coins of Gibraltar will commemorate the Island Games. The coins are expected to be issued soon.

Unlike the previous 2 one-year-sets, this time each coin in the series will depict a different design. The coins depict logos of various sports that were used during the Island Games. The denomination on the coins will be depicted as only a figure. The 1 pound coin in the series will be round.

The 1 penny coin will depict the Swimming logo
The 2 pence coin will depict the Volleybal logo
The 5 pence coin will depict the Athletics logo
The 10 pence coin will depict the Table Tennis logo
The 20 pence coin will depict the Triathlon logo
The 50 pence coin will depict the Sailing logo
The 1 pound coin will depict the Tennis logo
The 2 pound coin will depict the Cycling logo



Several of the other sports on the Island Games, namely: Basketball, Judo, Shooting, Squash and Ten pin bowling were not chosen to be depicted on a coin.
