Malta Issues New €2 Commemorative Coin


By Central Bank of Malta….
On 5 October 2015, the Central Bank of Malta issued the fifth coin in a series of €2 commemorative coins highlighting milestones in Malta’s Constitutional History.

The theme of this coin is ‘Republic – 1974’. The coin reverse is the common €2 side designed by Luc Luycx. The coin obverse (national side), which was designed by Ġanni Bonnici, reproduces a marble tablet affixed to the façade of the Presidential Palace in Valletta to mark Malta’s transition from a monarchy to a republic. Malta was declared a republic on 13 December 1974, following amendments to the constitutional changes which were approved by Malta’s Parliament.

The commemorative coin will be issued in Circulation quality in rolls of 25 coins each, and a limited number will also be issued in Proof quality. The coins were minted by the Royal Dutch Mint. The Bank will be contacting all those who have placed their orders to inform them of their allocation, the means of payment and the dates on which they can collect their coins. The coins will be available for collection from the Malta Coins Distribution Centre at the main building of the Central Bank of Malta.

For further information, the public is kindly requested to contact the Malta Coins Distribution Centre via email at [email protected] or by calling (+356) 2550 6006/7/8.
