This product attracts VAT and will be charged on checkout
A silver coin marking the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. World War II, with its legacy of death, genocide and devastated landscapes, was the most destructive in human history. The war in Europe came to an end on 8 May 1945 and in Far East and the Pacific Ocean on 15 August 1945.
The obverse of the coins features the coat of arms of Malta, while the reverse depicts three Gloster Gladiator bi-planes in flight over the Maltese islands. The artist – Noel Galea Bason – chose these legendary aircraft, dubbed Faith, Hope and Charity, as they epitomise Malta’s unequal fight against the might of the Axis forces, and remain one of the enduring symbols of Malta’s wartime experience.
