William Youngerman buys and sells a lot of Gibraltar gold coins and other coins and rare currencies from Gibraltar and other countries around the world. Gibraltar has a complicated history with currency and coins. Until they began minting their own coins in 1988, Gibraltar has had a currency system based off of the Spanish peso and British pound at different times throughout its history. Although it initially used Spanish coins and currencies, huge fluctuations in its value after the Spanish Civil war caused Gibraltar to switch over to the British pound.
It was not until 1927 that Gibraltar started issuing its own banknotes that were backed by the British pound. The coins issued in 1988 came in the denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 pence along with a 1 pound denomination coin. Although the designs were different, all of the coins are the same size and composition as British coins.
