    Coins commemorating the Gran Carracca Sant’Anna of the Order of St John

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    On 15 March 2019 the Central Bank of Malta will issue numismatic coins in gold and silver depicting the Order of St John's Gran Carracca Sant'Anna. The coins are issued under the Europa Programme with the theme 'Renaissance' and bear the Europa Star logo.

    The gold coin has a face value of €50 and the silver coin has a face value of €10. The €10 coins, which will be limited to 2,500 pieces, will be struck in 0.925 silver. Each coin has a weight of 28.28g and a diameter of 38.61mm. The €50 coins, which will be limited to just 400 pieces, will be struck in 0.916 gold and each coin weighs 6.5g and has a diameter of 21mm. Both the silver and the gold coins are finished to proof quality.

    The coins were designed and engraved by Noel Galea Bason, and were minted at the Royal Dutch Mint. The obverse of the coin features the coat of arms of Malta and the Europa Star logo. The reverse of the coins depicts the Gran Carracca Sant'Anna, a warship renowned for its large size and prodigious firepower.

    The carrack was one of the most influential ship designs of the Renaissance. Of robust construction and combining speed with manoeuvrability, carracks could serve as both merchant ships and warships. The Order of St John's carrack Sant' Anna, was launched in December 1522, at about the same time that the knights lost Rhodes. This ship, the pride of the Order's navy, carried Grand Master Philippe Villiers de L'Isle Adam to Malta in 1530. This event marked the start of the Order's long sojourn on the island and the start of a new epoch in Maltese history.

    This year's coins will be part of a five-year series dedicated to different periods of European art-forms and history which have been widely grouped as: Modern 20th century (2016), The Age of iron and glass (2017), Baroque and Rococo (2018), Renaissance (2019) and Gothic (2020).

    The gold coin will be sold for €340 while the silver coin will be sold for €60.

    Die Central Bank of Malta informiert:

    On 13 May 2019 The Central Bank of Malta will be issuing a new euro coin set dated 2019 in a brilliant uncirculated version. The set consists of the eight Maltese euro coins as well as a €2 coin depicting the prehistoric temples of Ta' Hagrat. The latter is the fourth in a series of seven coins dedicated to Maltese prehistoric monuments.

    Ta’ Ħaġrat Temple in Mġarr has two main structures. The larger of the two dates to circa 3,600 – 3,200 BC, whilst the other was built at a later stage c.3,300-3,000BC. The site started being excavated in 1923 by Sir Temi Zammit and G.G. Sinclair. The temple’s imposing portal surmounted by a massive lintel and the three large steps leading from the forecourt to the gateway’s threshold are unique features of this temple. Ta’ Ħaġrat is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    All the coins in the set are in brilliant uncirculated quality and were struck at the Monnaie de Paris in France. The national sides of the euro coins and the commemorative €2 coin were designed by Noel Galea Bason. The sets, which will be limited to 15,000, will be presented in an attractive and illustrated blister-pack.
