Maltese Euro Coins



Malta applied to join the Euro zone in February 2007, the Euro becoming the official currency on 1st January 2008. Some basic facts relating to Malta.




Normal Currency Coins.

As with many other countries in the Euro zone, Malta has three motifs for its coins- one for the "copper coloured coins"(1 cent, 2 cent and 5 cent), one for the "gold coloured coins" (10 cent,20 cent and 50 cent) and finally one for the one Euro and two Euro coins.

The first motif (1,2 and5 cent coins) is the Mnjada temple. This is believed to have been erected around 4.000 BC thus making it one of the oldest religious sites on earth.

The second motif (10,20 and 50 cent coins) is the Maltese Coat of Arms.

The third motif (1 and 2 Euro coins) is the Maltese Cross.
