    Gibraltar is a British overseas territory. The British Nationality Act 1981 granted Gibraltarians full British citizenship.

    Under its current Constitution, Gibraltar has almost complete internal democratic self-government through an elected parliament. The head of state is Queen Elizabeth II, who is represented by the Governor of Gibraltar.

    The sovereignty of Gibraltar is a major point of contention in Anglo-Spanish relations as Spain asserts a claim to the territory and seeks its return. Gibraltarians resoundingly rejected proposals for Spanish sovereignty in referendums held in 1967 and 2002.

    No, it's a British Overseas Territory as the other posters say.

    The point made by by Michel Verheughe may be a little wide of the mark, we haven't had a pound note since 1984 since it was replaced by the pound coin.

    The point about parity is also erroneous, the Gibraltar, Falkland, Ascension Island, St Helena, Jersey and Guernsey pounds all have parity with the UK pound, but only in their own countries.

    A UK pound can be spent in these territories, but the overseas pounds cannot be used in the UK, or indeed outside their own jurisdictions. (They do however I am told fit slot machines and parking meters in the UK)

    Nope. Gibraltar is still a U.K. possession. I'm told that legend has it that once the Barbary apes vanish from there, Great Britain will give Gibraltar back to Spain.

    ... and just to make things more difficult; the Gibraltar Pound doesn't have the same value as the British one. But then, nor does the Pound of Guernsey. If you have a Pound note, look carefully, it may be written: Bank of Gibraltar or Bank of Scotland ... they are not similar although people will accept them for the same value if in small quantities.

    Source(s): Been there, done that.
