Malta Euro Coins 2012 "TYC Coin Found in Circulation"


On the Forum MuntHunter, a Dutch member reported that has found the Malta €2 commemorative coin "10 years of euro cash" in circulation. This is probably a leak from the Dutch mint. This coin should be officially out in Malta on the 30th March, 2012

now it is official the 2 euro from Malta will be out tomorrow

On Friday 30 March 2012, the Central Bank of Malta will be issuing the first coin of its 2012 Coin Programme - the €2 coin commemorating ‘’Ten years of the Euro’’. The coin will be issued in circulation quality in rolls of 25 coins each.

This commemorative coin will be issued by all euro area countries and will have a common design on the national side of the coin. It was designed by an Austrian mint designer and was selected by an international jury in a competition organised by the ECB.

The design symbolises the way in which the euro has established itself as a major currency after ten years of existence. It shows its importance in the lives of the euro area community (represented by the people), in trade (represented by the ship), in industry (represented by the factory) and in energy (represented by the wind power stations). As announced by the Bank on the 3 February the coin will be made available in limited quantities to those who have submitted an order on the Bank’s prescribed form in the period 3 February to 20 February. It will not be available for sale over the counter. The Bank would like to emphasise that, in view of the fact that the number of orders received substantially exceeded the amount of coins that the Bank is permitted to issue, the Bank is not in a position to fully meet all requests submitted in the order forms.

The Bank will be contacting all those who placed their orders to inform them of their allocation, the means of payment and the dates on which they will be requested to collect them.

For further information the public is kindly requested to contact the Malta Coins Distribution Centre of the Bank through an e-mail message addressed to or by calling the Centre on +356 2550 6008.

The same used to happen with Malta stamps produced by a German company some years ago.

I think this would be interested in people from the Royal Dutch Mint mainly....
