To commemorate the coronation, Gibraltar will soon issue a special series of circulating coins. The coins will be minted at Tower Mint. They will respectively depict:

1 pence - The cypher of King Charles III with a wreath
2 pence - Windsor Castle
5 pence - the Orb
10 pence - King's sceptre with a cross
20 pence - The crown
50 pence - Westminster Abbey
1 pound - Coronation chair
2 pounds - Gibraltar crest
5 pounds - Gibraltar coat of arms

Apparently the Gibraltar government gave each school child a special 10p coin to commemorate the coronation, I wonder if this is the first one to be issued from the set ? My friend in Gibraltar will be able to throw more light on the subject later when I contact him.
All coins are equal but some are more equal than others

Windsor Castle. Nice. But why the oak wreaths?

Why is there so often so much ornamentation on royal issues?

This does not apply to the regular release. This is from the series "the end and the beginning of an era (10 and 50 pence were issued).

The whole series is pictured on page 26 of the World Monay Fair 2024 catalogue. Still no bimetalic pound.

The designs are too busy. The 2 pence and 20 pence look closest to OK.

Also, the set is late. Why now? The coronation took play on 6th May 2023.

Gibraltar likes any excuse to issue a one-year circulation set, of course.

Website is down for maintenance. I haven't come across any official dealers offering the set for sale yet.

My friend from Gibraltar checked with the Treasury today. He was told that so far only sets for the Berlin fair had been released. In Gibraltar, the kits are expected later, within a few months.
