Round Pound coin celebrates The 150th Open Championship
** Only available until 31st March **
It’s been over 6 years since the Round Pounds were phased out and replaced by the new 12-sided coin, marking the end of an era for UK coinage — but it has returned for a very special occasion.
This Round Pound has been issued in 2022 to celebrate The Open — the oldest golfing competition in the world. Founded in 1860, the 2022 Championship marked The 150th Open and was the largest in the Championship’s history, with record breaking attendance at The Old Course, St Andrews.
Fully Approved by The R&A
Issued by the Government of Gibraltar and fully approved by The R&A, the reverse design features The 150th Open logo upon a golf-ball-patterned background, with the brand line ‘Everything has led to this’ alongside the denomination ONE POUND.
The Last Round Pound to Feature Queen Elizabeth II
Whilst it is already a unique issue due to the design and round shape, it has also become the last round £1 coin to feature Queen Elizabeth II, with Raphael Maklouf's renown engraving of Her Late Majesty on the obverse.
Struck to the UK Round Pound Specification
Struck to an unblemished Brilliant Uncirculated finish, the preferred quality for collectors, this coin is housed in a bespoke prestation card to protect its superior quality.
What’s more, it’s the exact same size and weight as the UK’s Round Pound — which hasn’t been seen since 2016.
