About Peace €2 Coin Card

The second in a series of five coins under the programme entitled ‘From Children in Solidarity’. The coin reverse shows the common €2 side, while the obverse (national side) shows two young children holding the Maltese flag with the dove of peace flying overhead. The winning design for this year was submitted by 12 year old Katya Muscat. The coin’s engraver, Noel Galea Bason, converted the design to make it suitable for coining whilst remaining faithful to the qualities of an artwork produced by a young hand.

The Central Bank of Malta will issue the second €2 commemorative coin under the programme entitled 'From Children in Solidarity'. The theme of this year's coin is 'PEACE' and follows on that issued in 2016 with the theme 'Solidarity through Love'.

The 'From Children in Solidarity' coin programme 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. Officially launched on 5 June 2015 by Her Excellency the President of Malta, Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca and the Governor of the Central Bank of Malta, this social responsibility programme involved a coin design competition open to all secondary school students.

The winning design for this year, submitted by 12 year old Katya Muscat who attends the Bishop's Conservatory Secondary School in Gozo, shows two young children holding the Maltese flag with the dove of peace flying overhead. The coin's engraver, Noel Galea Bason, converted the design to make it suitable for coining whilst remaining faithful to the qualities of an artwork produced by a young hand.

The coin cards, will be limited to 30,000
