Ggantija - Coin Card

€7.00

Quantity

The first in a series of seven coins commemorating Maltese Prehistoric Temples. The coin reverse shows the common €2 side while the obverse (national side) shows a representation of the Ggantija temples. The coin obverse was designed by Noel Galea Bason. The Ggantija Temples complex in Gozo is one of the best preserved on the Maltese islands. The site dates to 3,600-3,200 B.C. and is one of the oldest free-standing monuments in the world. Ggantija was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1980. This coin is the first of a series of seven that will be issued by the Bank which will depict Malta's prehistoric monuments that are listed by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites. The coins in the cards, of which only 30,000 will be made, will bear a mint-mark of the Monnaie de Paris, where the coins were minted. Actual sizes of coins may vary from pictures
