It’s been 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 today 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 marks The 150th Open, held at The Old Course, St Andrews it’s expected to be the largest in the Championship’s history, with record breaking attendance.
Fully Approved by The R&A
Issued by the Government of Gibraltar and fully approved by The R&A, the reverse design features The Open 150th logo upon a golf ball patterned background with the brand line ‘Everything has led to this’ alongside the denomination ONE POUND. The obverse features the Raphael Maklouf engraving of Queen Elizabeth II.
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.
And unlike the UK, you can still find round pounds in circulation in Gibraltar. They’re used daily as part of their currency so it’s not uncommon to find them in your change over there. We don’t yet have confirmation on whether this coin will enter circulation in Gibraltar, but if it does — that will increase the collectability even more.
