To commemorate the 95th birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Gibraltar will issue a commemorative 50p coin. The coins will be minted at Tower Mint.

The coins will depict a banner with the inscription "1926-2021", surrounded by ornate patterns including a daisy, the birth flower for April. Below the banner, the lettering: "HM THE QUEEN"  and "95 GLORIOUS YEARS" can be seen.

A special coin has been found in circulation in Gibraltar. Nothing is known about it. It is a 1 pound coin that has the same design on it as the commemorative 50p that was issued for the Queen's 95th birthday. The coin was produced by Tower Mint.

I have looked into the information in the message above and have been able to confirm that Gibraltar has indeed also authorized the release of a commemorative 1 pound coin for the 95th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II. The coins have been released into circulation today. They are not (yet?) available from any of the known coin dealers. When I first saw this piece I wondered whether Gibraltar would have minted a full commemorative circulating coin series, like they did in 2017, 2018 and 2019, but that does not appear to be the case. It is also remarkable that the 1 pound coin is still of the old style, while it is known Gibraltar has been working for quite some time on the introduction of a bimetallic 12-sided piece.

Yes, so not a full series of 1p-2 pounds in circulation like the referendum series of 2017, Calpe House series of 2018 and Island Games series of 2019. Only the release of a commemorative 50p and 1 pound, and a bunch of collectors coins was authorized.

The £1 coin isn’t listed by the Gibraltar post office site as yet.

Not likely too.
The Royal Mint has denied the sale of bimetallic blanks and the current awardee of minting does not have the know how.

Offa is not referring to the coin not being bimetallic. He means that the commemorative 1 pound coin is not yet available from the webshop of the Gibraltar Philatelic Bureau/Gibraltar Stamps.
