The Malta Coins Distribution Centre is the sales outlet of the
Central Bank of Malta and is responsible for the issuance
of commemorative coins. All commemorative coins issued have
a legal tender value, besides their intrinsic value of the
precious metal content.
The Bank will also be responsible for the €2 commemorative
coin issue. This coin, which can be issued once a year, has the
same features and properties and the same common side as normal €2
coins. What makes them different is their commemorative design
on the national side.
The Currency Advisory Board recommends a variety of local and
international themes, which are then designed by master craftsmen.
The coins are minted at the most renowned mints. The limited
mintage figures and the reasonable prices make the purchase of
these commemorative coins a worthwhile investment and a precious
souvenir of Malta.
This section also provides collectors with information on the
Maltese commemorative coins which have been issued throughout
