The Central Bank of Malta has announced they will issue, on the 22nd July, the fourth commemorative €2 coin in a series of seven dedicated to the Maltese islands’ prehistoric sites which are on the UNESCO World Heritage list. The featured site for 2019 is the Ta’ Hagrat, an ancient temple in Malta, along with several other megalithic temples that are amongst the most ancient religious sites on Earth.
Artist Noel Galea Bason designed the obverse, which shows a representation of Ta’ Haġrat temples in Mġarr and dates to around 3,600-3,000 BCE. It is one of the best preserved in Malta with its imposing portal. The reverse design is that of a standard €2 coin, found throughout all countries of the euro-zone. The face value “€2” appears in front of a map of Europe.
The Brilliant Uncirculated quality coins are presented in a coin-card format.
