Gibraltar, 2017.    50th anniversary of the 1967 referendum.


In 2017 Gibraltar issued a special series of circulating coins for the 50th anniversary of the referendum that was held in 1967. In the referendum, Gibraltarian citizens were asked if they wanted to stay under British sovereignty or come under Spanish sovereignty. 99% of the people who cast their vote voted to remain British.

The set included 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 pence coins, and also 1 pound and 2 pounds coin.

The common reverse design featured the coat of arms of the Government of Gibraltar.

GIBRALTAR 2018.



In 2018 the Pobjoy Mint produced a new series of coins for Gibraltar.

This was a one-year series only, meant to commemorate the opening of New Calpe House in London.

This replaced the old Calpe House and is intended to provide a venue for the Gibraltarian community in London.


The portrait of the Queen used as the common obverse design is the work of Raphael Maklouf.

Above you see the portrait as it appeared on the 2018 penny.

Spain: World Cup 1982 Series.

Spain was chosen to host the 1982 FIFA World Cup. In 1980 a series of circulating commemorative coins was issued in advance, to honour the occasion.

These coins consisted of the standard denominations of the day, namely 50 centimos, 1, 5, 25, 50 and 100 pesetas. They were all minted to the usual specifications as regards size, weight and metal, but the reverse designs were related to the football theme. The obverse of the coins carried the standard royal portrait as usual.

The year on the obverse was a frozen date of 1980, but the true year of minting was found on the reverse of the coin within the star. Each coin carried the phrase 'España '82' on the reverse.

The special 50 centimos and the 100 pesetas coins were issued in 1980 only, but the remaining denominations were issued from 1980 through to 1982.

The 50 centimos was the only coin in the set that did not show the year of issue in a star on the reverse.

There was no 10 pesetas coin in the set. Spain had last minted a 10 pesetas coin in 1879. It did not mint another one until 1983, the year after the World Cup.
