There are fourteen territories that remain under British rule, although self-government is common among them. These countries are not independent, but the countries of the British Overseas Territories can issue their own money. Some align their currency with the currency of another nation.
The members of the British Overseas Territories are British Antarctic Territories, South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands (not to be confused with Georgia the country), British Indian Ocean Territory, Akrotin and Dhekelia (Military bases of Cyprus), Pitcairn Islands, Falkland Islands, South Helena – Ascension – and Tristan da Cunah, Anguilla, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Montserrat, Gibraltar, Bermuda, and Turks and Caicon Islands.
There are three Crown Dependencies. These include the Isle of Man, Jersey, and Guernsey.
Of the above only the Cypriot territory of military bases uses the Euro. However, interesting is the fact that Gibraltar is a member of the European Union.
Since all three Crown dependencies are within Europe, could they partition for European Union status and change to the euro if Brexit becomes a reality? Currently, they have their own currencies. Gibraltar, one of the British Overseas Territories is already a member of the European Union. Apparently Gibraltar is to be able to remain in the EU even if the United Kingdom withdraws.
Some of the more interesting coins are discussed below.
