Gibraltar 50p Victory combined

Coin commemorating the HMS Victory.

The government of the British overseas territory of Gibraltar has issued a number of commemorative 50 pence coins from 1988 to the present to mark special occasions, most frequently the holiday of Christmas and notable armed conflicts involving the United Kingdom.

A majority of Gibraltarian 50 pence coins are composed of cupronickel, but were examples struck in silver from 1988 to 2003, in gold from 1988 to 2001, and in platinum from 1988 to 1995. All coins struck from 2004 to the present are composed of cupronickel. Like the general issue 50 pence coins of Gibraltar and the United Kingdom, all the commemorative issues are heptagonal in shape. The cupronickel coins struck until the end of 1996 weighed 13.4 grams, while the silver issues weighed 15.5 grams, the gold 26 grams, and the platinum 30.4 grams. The diameter of the commemorative 50 pence coins was reduced from 30 millimeters to 27.3 millimeters in 1997, and the mass was lowered to 8 grams for all compositions. Like most coins of the British Commonwealth produced since 1952, all commemorative 50 pence coins of Gibraltar bear a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.
