This collection coin represents the presence that historically and currently have monkeys on the rock of Gibraltar. These animals are a symbol. The macaques live freely and feed themselves through the food that the Gibraltar authorities give them and the food they "steal" from houses and tourists.

As an anecdote, while the American actor Jason Biggs (protagonist of the saga American Pie) was visiting Gibraltar he was attacked by a monkey and even came to bite him. After this, with a gesture of humor, some British asked the actor to deny the enmity he had with them.

There is a legend in which it is said that whenever there are monkeys on the rock, the British will continue to maintain sovereignty.
