This coin commemorates a milestone in the Maltese history when the Maltese had a majority representation in the local assembly.

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?
