European Money Week - Secondary school students visit the Central Bank of Malta
On Thursday 30 March, a group of students visited the Central Bank of Malta premises at Castille Place, Valletta. This visit formed part of the European Money Week activities organised by the Malta Bankers' Association. These activities included a series of events, both at national and European levels, aimed at raising public awareness of the importance of financial literacy from an early age, and the need to improve financial education for students from junior and secondary schools.
Following a presentation of the Bank's general roles and function, the students had the opportunity to view one of the largest selections of numismatic coins and banknotes in Malta. The students were briefed on the security features of the new €50 banknote which will be launched on 4 April.
This was the third consecutive year that the Central Bank of Malta participated in this initiative.
