Malta Euro Coins 2012 "Majority Representation 1887" €2 Commemorative Coin Design Changed Again

THIRD AND FINAL DESIGN

 

 



 

 

SECOND DESIGNED

 

 



 

 

 

FIRST 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

I received yesterday my two rolls: both are broken.
Even the rolls of the previous issue "TYE" were broken.
The packaging is really bad and the method is wrong: the rolls should be separated, otherwise collide ...
I had written previously to the Bank to get a better package, but on two occasions no one gave me straight!
Now I think it's time we all do hear our complaints to the Central Bank of Malta.
Really money spent badly !!!   :(

what this means?

current coins are invalid or else the EU has to amend the journal

I have noticed that the 2 euro commemorative coin in the BU set has a proof like quality - I did not see much different between the proof coin and the BU set coin - but there are quality difference from the 2 euro in the rolls. Anyone else noticed this?

I suppose you're right. It's the Issuing Bank and Mint's responsibility to issue decent looking coins.

Aesthetics have nothing to do with collecting commemorative coins. People collecting cc's are buying (or swapping for) ALL the coins, ugly and pretty.

Things change when the coin is mint or an expensive bullion (gold, silver, platinum)... You get as many as your wallet can afford, according to your own criteria.... One criterion might be ''beauty''
