The third in a series of five coins commemorating the programme entitled ‘From Children in Solidarity’.
The 'From Children in Solidarity' coin programme, which was officially launched in 2015, is an initiative undertaken by the Central Bank of Malta, in collaboration with the Ministry for Education and Employment and the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation.
Designed by Nicole Dimech, who attends St Nicholas College Middle School, Rabat, the coin depicts a collage of items associated with the Maltese islands: a stylised megalithic temple doorway, the sun, a church dome and spire, the sea and a representation of a Maltese boat flying the national flag. The coin was engraved by Noel Galea Bason.
The coins in the cards, of which only 20,000 will be made, will bear a mint-mark of the Monnaie de Paris, where the coins were minted.
