50th Anniversary of the Armed Forces of Malta coins launch

On 25 March 2021, the Malta Coin Centre of the Central Bank of Malta will be issuing two numismatic coins in silver and cupro-nickel, marking the 50th anniversary of the Armed Forces of Malta. 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the coins will not be on sale from the Bank's premises but will only be available from the Malta Coin Centre e-shop.

Mr Alexander Demarco, Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Malta, had officially launched the coins during an event organised by the Armed Forces of Malta at the Luqa Barracks, on 18 December 2020.

The coin design was the result of a collaboration between the Bank and the Armed Forces of Malta. The coins were manufactured by the Royal Dutch Mint.

On the reverse, the coins feature the regimental badge of the Armed Forces of Malta on a red-on-blue coloured background. On the obverse is the coat of arms of the Republic of Malta together with the year of issue.

The coins can be pre-ordered from the Malta Coin Centre website.

More information may be obtained from the Malta Coin Centre, which may be contacted by email or by phone on (+356) 2550 6006/7. A digital version of the 2021 coin programme is available from the Malta Coin Centre website as well as on the Central Bank of Malta's website
