2022 Gold bullion coins Malta – MELITA
- August 28, 2022
The Melita gold bullion coins are issued by the Central Bank of Malta in collaboration with Lombard Bank Malta p.l.c. These coins are exempt from VAT as they are classified as bullion. They come in four different euro denominations. The coins are legal tender in Malta. The coins depict the allegorical figure, the national personification of the island of Malta, MELITA. The design is that of the “Melita” postage stamp by Edward Caruana Dingli, which was used in the archipelago from 1922 to 1926.
These stamps were designed to commemorate Malta’s new status as a self-governing colony following a new constitution in 1921. Melita is depicted as a helmeted figure in robes holding a rudder, representing Malta controlling its own destiny.
On the obverse, the coins depict the coat of arms of Malta.
The coins were minted by the Swiss-based company PAMP.
