The 150th Anniversary of the Suez Canal

The ancient idea of cutting a canal connecting the Mediterranean and the Red Sea flared up following Napoleon's conquest of Egypt in 1798. He explored the possibility but was dissuaded by Jean-Baptiste Lepere who believe that the two seas were at different altitudes.

In December 1858, the Suez Canal Company was formed, and in April 1859 excavation works started.

   

The reverse of this stunning silver coin shows steamships transiting the Suez Canal, and was designed and engraved by Matyas Houf.

The obverse, which carries the coat-of-arms of the Republic of Malta, was designed by Noel Galea Bason.
