Republic of Malta 1974
The coin is the last in a series of five commemorating Maltese constitutional milestones.
Malta was declared a republic on 13 December 1974 following constitutional changes which were agreed upon by a great majority in Malta’s Parliament.
The design reproduces a marble tablet affixed to the façade of the Presidential Palace in Valletta to mark Malta’s change from a monarchy to a republic.
At the top right, in semi-circle, the inscription ‘MALTA — Republic 1974’.
At the bottom, the year ‘2015’.
