Government asking local businesses to carry on accepting old £1 coins until Gibraltar is ready with its own 12 sided coin

Despite the fact that the UK will be getting rid of the old pound coins in a week, the Government is asking businesses on the Rock to carry on accepting them until Gibraltar is ready with its own 12 sided coin. The Minister with responsibility for Economic Development, Joe Bossano, says they’re opting for the least disruptive option, adding the Rock should have its own coins by March next year.
