Product beschrijving

In 2014, the Central Bank of Malta issued a numismatic coin in silver and in brass commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the commencement of the First World War. The reverse of the coin shows the emblem of Malta with the year of issue 2014. The obverse features a nurse administering medication to a wounded soldier. This recalls the humanitarian role that Malta played during the First World War with its almost 30 hospitals and convalescent camps, where thousands of casualties of the war were treated. The obverse of the coin also features a soldier and a red-coloured poppy which is the evocative symbol of remembrance of all soldiers who died in the conflict. This is the first time that colour has been used on a Maltese coin.
