THIRD AND FINAL DESIGN
The Central Bank of Malta has changed again the design of the national 2 euro commemorative coin "Majority Representation 1887". The bank had received lot of negative comments that the original design was showing a Nazi salut and had thus changed the design. The second design was criticized that the faces were too ugly and thus the bank had changed again this design and the actual minted coin looks different from the previous two designs.
05 December 2012 - for the first time in the history of euro coins, the European Union has published in its official Journal, the wrong design and mintage volume. The journal is showing the second design submitted which is different from the one minted. Also according to the journal, Malta minted 430,000 coins, however, it actually minted 455,000 - check the Journal here
