The first bank notes issued in Gibraltar date back to 1914. The monetary unit of Gibraltar is actually Pounds Sterling. Gibraltar’s currency notes Ordinance did not create a separate currency but conferred on the Government of Gibraltar to print currency notes, which were legal currency in Gibraltar. Sterling currency notes issued by the Bank of England have therefore been legal tender and in circulation in Gibraltar alongside the local note issues, since these early days.
A wide variety of Gibraltar circulation and commemorative coinage is available or can be ordered.
