CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Queen Elizabeth II - Platinum Jubilee

Malta has been using the Euro as its currency since 2008. Apart from the regular circulation coinage, the country has also authorised some mints to issue non circulating and bullion coins under its jurisdiction. The one troy ounce of silver (1oz) format is internationally popular, and is formally denominated as €10 (Ten Euro) in face value. According to Eurozone convention, the denomination is legal tender in Malta only, and not in the whole Eurozone.

This coin celebrates the Platinum Jubilee (70 years of the throne) of Queen Elizabeth II.

While Malta is a republic, it has a long association with British monarchy, having been a British colony from 1813 to 1964. Queen Elizabeth II was the last monarch of the country. Additionally, between 1949 and 1951, the young princess Elizabeth made Malta her home at the age of 23 while her husband was stationed on the island with the navy. Living at Villa Guardamangia, an 18th-century house owned by the Prince’s uncle Lord Mountbatten and just outside the city of Valletta, the newlyweds and their two young children could lead a relatively normal life. As Queen, Elizabeth II visited Malta after it became a republic in 1992, in 2005, and 2007 on the very day she and Prince Philip celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Her last visit to Malta was in 2015, when she attended the 2015 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Valetta.

Elizabeth II ascended the throne on 6 February 1952 at the age of 25 and was crowned Queen on 2 June 1953 in Westminster Abbey. The ceremony, with the exception of the anointing and communion, was televised for the first time. She was the constitutional monarch of 16 sovereign states known as "Commonwealth Realms," including their territories and dependent territories, and the head of the 53-state Commonwealth of Nations and secular head of the Anglican Church of England. In 2020, Queen Elizabeth II was the longest reigning monarch to date and the first to celebrate such an anniversary.

Malta / Silver Ounce 2022 Queen Elizabeth II - Platinum Jubilee - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin shows at its centre the Coat of Arms of the Central Bank of Malta. At centre, a shield divided in three parts; in the top part, a horizontal key as a symbol of economic progress and security; the lower parts have "heraldic hatching" indicating a white background on the left, and a red background on the right - the colours of the flag of Malta; in the left part, the George Cross, awarded to Malta for bravery in April 1942 by King George VI. Above the shield, a crest surrounded by laurel and palm branches, symbols of honour and peace respectively, supporting a mural crown on top - symbolic of Malta's historic role as a fortress.

On the sides, the shield is supported by two armoured and helmeted Knights of Malta holding large swords, representing confidence and strength, the two virtues incorporated in the Bank's motto. These symbolise some of the greatest pages in Malta's long military history, which, for more than two-and-a-half centuries, was ruled by the Order of the Knights of St John of Jerusalem. The plumed helmet of a knight which surmounts the shield also has a special connection to Malta as it was modelled on one found on a monument in the 16th century Co-Cathedral of St John in Valletta, built by the Knights.

On a ribbon below, the motto in Latin: FIDUCIA FORTIS ("In Confidence Strength"), and the date the bank was founded, 1968.

Around above, the name of the issuing authority: CENTRAL BANK OF MALTA.

Around below, the date of issue 2022.

The reverse of the coin is coloured and shows the Jubilee emblem (or logo). The logo features a purple and platinum design; the continuous platinum line reveals a stylised St Edward's Crown within a circle to create the impression of a royal seal, and the number 70 has been incorporated within the top of the crown signifying the Platinum Jubilee. The purple colour is the shade which most closely corresponds to the purple in the Queen's Robe of Estate and Coronation Gown.

Around above, the inscription THE QUEEN'S PLATINUM JUBILEE; the face value and denomination · 10 EURO · are around below.
