Children’s coin proceeds donated to the MCCFF

The Central Bank of Malta has reiterated its commitment to the community by making a fourth consecutive yearly donation to the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation (MCCFF).

The sum of nearly €50,000 was presented to H.E. George Vella, President of Malta, during a courtesy visit at Sant'Anton Palace by staff from the Malta Coin Centre, which is responsible for the Bank's numismatic issues. 

The amount represents the profit from the sale of coin cards containing the €2 commemorative coin dedicated to the twin themes of nature and environment.

The commemorative €2 coin is the fourth in the From Children in Solidarity series issued by the Central Bank of Malta. The coin was designed by students through a competition open to all secondary students, with the winning designs selected by an expert panel. The fifth, and last, coin in the series - on the theme of games - will be issued later on this year.

The President of Malta welcomed the donation and said: "The Bank's donation strengthens the mission of the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation which requires a great deal of funds to meet the numerous demands that it receives daily for help from several people, but at the same time this has been an excellent opportunity for children to express their ideas about current issues through creativity and art."
