NEW Round Pound coin celebrates The 150th Open Championship

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 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.

And unlike the UK, you can still find round pounds in circulation in Gibraltar. They’re used as part of their daily currency so it’s not uncommon to find them in your change 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.
