The ?0.10, ?0.20 and the ?0.50 cents coins have the coat of arms of Malta, while the ?1.00 and ?2.00 coins depict the George Cross.
Malta Money: Some history on the Malta Lira
The Maltese lira was the Maltese currency from 1972 up until the 31st of December 2007.
The lira currency sign was Lm, although the pound sign was used as well. This used to occur due to the long British occupation. Sometimes, the Maltese lira was also referred to as the pound.
