A Silver Proof €10 coin commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the commencement of the First World War.
The obverse of the coin shows the emblem of Malta with the year of issue 2014.
The reverse features a nurse administering medication to a wounded soldier. This recalls the humanitarian role that Malta played during the First World War with its 27 hospitals and convalescent camps, where thousands of casualties of the war were treated. The reverse of the coin also features a soldier and a red-coloured poppy which is the evocative symbol of remembrance of all soldiers who died in the conflict.
This is the first time that colour has been used on a Maltese coin. The coins were designed and engraved by Noel Galea Bason.
Presented in a Wooden displaay case, and with a Certificate of Authenticity from the Central Bank of Malta.
