Maltese coins in Greece

A few days ago I got my first :flag-mt: Maltese euro coins, found at the restaurant at my workplace in :flag-gr: Kallithea, Attica, Greece. Immediately after the first coin, a considerable number of them started appearing. I was surprised at this sudden (but most welcome!) influx of Maltese euro coins and was informed that the source of all of them was one particular colleague who had just returned from vacation in Malta, with his pockets full of Maltese coins. :D

Eventually, I got hold of the Maltese 10 cent, 50 cent and 2 euro coins, which have been added to my collection, thanks to that colleague. Note here that I received them as change on circulation, while that colleague had already spent all his Maltese coins in the restaurant before I found out he had those.

Yesterday I went to buy food from the nearby grocerystore and got :flag-mt: 10cents in exchange :D . I didn´t even notice it until few hours later, when I was paying my ticket at the trainstation, and fortunately didn´t spent it accidently... All this happened in Tampere, Finland.

and it's nicer to see the faces of foreigners when they realise that they were just given a maltese coin as change.

Ask the woman from Porta Angelica in Rome!!.

Two weeks ago I happened to find my very first maltese coin, outside of Malta that is. Given to me as change for buying some fruit. It's a €1 and was the ONLY coin left in the cashtill of a fruit vendor just next to the Pisa leaning tower.
