The Central Bank of Malta has issued a silver and a gold coin with the theme “La Castellania” as part of the Europa Programme 2009 dedicated to ‘Cultural Heritage’.

The obverse of the coins shows the Emblem of Malta with the year of issue 2009. The reverse depicts the Castellania, which is one of the most architecturally striking buildings in Merchants Street in Valletta. Since 1895 this building has housed the Medical and Public Health Head Office. The ‘Europa Star’, which is the official logo of the programme, is also shown on the reverse side of the coins.

These numismatic coins were minted at the Royal Dutch Mint with the following specifications:

The silver coin is available for sale at the price of e38 while the gold coin carries a price of e200 (inclusive of VAT). These coins may be purchased from the Malta Coins Distribution Centre, Central Bank of Malta, Pjazza Kastilja, Valletta, or via the Bank’s website: www.centralbankmalta.org under the Currency section. Further information may be obtained by phoning the Bank on 2550-6005.
