A popular belief holds that as long as the Gibraltar Barbary macaques exist in Gibraltar, the territory will remain British. Another story links Gibraltar to Africa by a subterranean passage which begins at Lower St. Michael's Cave in Gibraltar, passes under the Strait of Gibraltar, and the Gibraltar Barbary macaques entered The Rock from Morocco this way. We are therefore producing a series of four 50p coins each featuring a different Primate, the first of which will be the Barbary Macaque.

The design shows an adult Barbary Macaque Ape with an infant and a special coloured album has been produced to house the four coins and help you start the collection. 

**This coin is sold in a capsule inside a blue pouch. If purchased with an album no pouch will be supplied. If more than 15x coins have been purchased, please note no pouches will be included and your coins will be dispatched in tubes.**

The Barbary Ape is one of the best-known Old World monkey species, the males play an unusual role in rearing young. Because the fraternity in uncertain, males are integral to raising all infants. The population in Gibraltar is the only such population outside of the Northern Africa and the only population of wild monkeys in Europe.
