The Central Bank of Malta is issuing the fourth €2 commemorative coin under the ‘From Children in Solidarity’ programme, which gave schoolchildren the chance to design a coin.
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.
Joshua Stuart, a student of the Maria Regina College in Naxxar, opted for a simple stylised representation of the sun and a fruit tree. The coin has as its central theme the sun’s benevolent action, which provides warmth and light, and enables trees and vegetation to grow and bear fruit.
