Two days ago I remarked the first Maltese 20ct coin in my purse. Just spent it in an Edeka Supermarket in Greifswald-Ostseeviertel.

I'm not looking at each reverse side of coins - so this might not have been my first Maltese coin ever...

I was actually separating my €2 coins from the others (they are useful for paying the bus) when I saw a shiny 10 ct coin that had an unfamiliar design. Because you are reading this in this topic it is no surprise that it was a Maltese coin (from 2008, so it's not that new). I think it is the first coin with this design I've seen.
My NIG stats have finally disappeared. My EBTST stats are still available.

Congratulations for finding your first Maltese 10 cent coin :D . I need to admit, that I saw them a few times, especially on my visit to Malta at the end of September. Of course, it was very easy to find Maltese coins :mrgreen: , but even there, I only saw 2008 10 cent coins. Newer coins were only 2€ 2010. So I assume, that Malta didn't produce any new ones since joining the eurozone, and why should they? 5 years are not very old for a coin, and for example, German 10 cent coins are mostly 2002 ones, and they're a couple of years older than the Maltese ones.
Anyway, receiving a Maltese 10 cent coin outside Malta is rather hard and always a report worth :wink: .
