One year after Malta joined the European Union (May 1, 2004), the small island nation of Malta joined the European Financial Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM II). It happened on April 29, 2005. When developing the design of the national side of the Maltese euro coins, it was decided to hold a two-stage public vote. At the first stage, held from 14 to 29 January 2006, it was proposed to choose the best from 12 topics in four categories.
According to the results of the telephone voting, four projects received the most votes:

However, as there were two "finalists" in the category "Renaissance in Malta" and the theme "Statue of the Baptism of Christ" received more votes, the option "Fort St. Angelo" had to be abandoned in favor of the Mnajdra temple altar. As a result, not a single topic got into the second round from the “Maltese Archipelago” category. Also during the voting, the inhabitants of the island were asked to name their own design themes for future coins. According to the results of this survey, the most popular were the Maltese cross and the poet Dun Karm Psaila (Dun Karm Psaila, 1871-1961). In May 2006, the Maltese artist Noel Galea Bason (Noel Galea Bason, b. 1955) created four projects that took part in the second round of voting. In addition to the three winners of the first round, the Maltese Cross project was included in the second round as one of those proposed by the public.
During the second phase, held from May 29 to June 9, 2006, it was decided to display three themes on the obverse of the Maltese euro coins:

The project with the theme "Statue of the Baptism of Christ" received the least number of votes, and therefore did not make it onto the Maltese euro coins. The Central Bank of Malta released the final design of the coins on February 19, 2007.
In the nominal row, the topics are presented according to their popularity in the second round of voting.

On coins of 1, 2 and 5 euro cents, a fragment of the temple megalithic complex Mnajdra in the south of Malta, numbering at least 4.5 thousand years, is presented. Mnajdra, like the other nearby Hagar Qim complex, was built for cult purposes.
The temples of the Mnajdra complex make a huge contribution to understanding the life of the prehistoric civilization of Malta and to the general knowledge of the history of European architecture. In 1992, Mnajdra, along with other megalithic complexes of Malta, was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The 10-, 20- and 50-euro cent coins depict the state emblem of Malta.
The Coat of Arms of Malta in its present form was adopted by the Act on Emblems and Seals of the Republic of Malta of 1988. It depicts a shield representing the heraldic display of the Maltese flag and topped with a five-pronged gold tower crown, reminiscent of the historical role of the island as a sea fortress. The olive and palm branches surrounding the shield are symbols of peace, reminiscent of the local nature. On a white ribbon with a red inside, there is the name of the state at the bottom: REPUBBLIKA TA' MALTA.

Bimetallic coins in denominations of 1 and 2 euros are decorated with an eight-pointed Maltese cross - a symbol of the formerly powerful knightly order of the Hospitallers (later - the Order of Malta).
The symbol of the eight-pointed cross comes from the coat of arms of the Italian city of Amalfi, since the natives of this particular city were the founders of the hospital of St. John in Jerusalem, which gave rise to the order in the XI century. as a brotherhood helping the weak and pilgrims.
In the order, the white eight-pointed cross was considered a symbol of chastity and eight knightly virtues: truth, sincerity, faith, sinlessness, humility, patience, mercy, justice. For a long time (from the 16th to the 18th centuries) Malta was the headquarters of the Order of Malta.
On 27 February 2007, it was announced that Malta had formally made a request for the introduction of the euro on the island. On May 16, 2007, the European Commission and the European Central Bank confirmed Malta's readiness to switch to a new currency on January 1, 2008. The same decision was made on June 21 of the same year at the EU summit in Brussels and officially confirmed by the heads of state and government of the EU.

The first issue of Maltese euro coins, dated 2008, was minted at the Paris Mint. The minting of coins in subsequent years was carried out at the Royal Mint of the Netherlands.
