The design series of 2014 did not include a penny or two pence coin. In the UK, there is already some debate as to the usefulness of these coins, and whether they should be phased out.

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 become under Spanish sovereignty. 99% of the people who casted their vote voted to remain British. Interestingly the 1p and 2p coins are included in the series. These denominations were not included in the standard circulating coin series that was being issued since 2014. For the first time since 2003, the circulation coins of Gibraltar were again produced at Pobjoy Mint. A portrait that is exclusive to Pobjoy Mint can be seen on the obverse of the coins. On their reverses the coat of arms of Gibraltar is depicted.

The 20 pence coin. It is the only denomination in the series that also depicts the denomination in figures.

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 appears on the 2018 penny.

The common reverse design of the coins showed the New Calpe House logo.

The logo conveys the idea of a rock that is also a home, namely Gibraltar, with a large sun, and a small ship.

This is the design as it appeared on the reverse of the penny.
