The pound (ISO 4217 currency code: GIP) is nominally the currency of Gibraltar. Initially, British currency circulated, supplemented by the real between 1842 and 1861. Since 1927, Gibraltar has issued its own banknotes and, since 1988, its own coins, although British coins and banknotes continue to circulate and are widely accepted; Euros are also accepted by most of the high-street stores. Gibraltar decimalized in 1971 at the same time as the UK. Gibraltar coins and notes cannot be used in the UK.
