Small Museum on coins
Aug 2019
The Central Bank of Malta Currency Museum is located at Castile Place and you will not miss it when you arrive Valletta by cruise ship. The small museum within the bank structure is nice for coins collectors as it houses a wide collection of local and European coins.

Small museum
Aug 2019 • Solo
Central Bank of Malta Currency Museum is a small museum at the reception of the Central bank, and it has a collection of coins dating back to 500 BC in the Punic rule of Malta, you can the follow the coin history from Romans, to the Knights, the French and the British, and then to Maltese pounds and lastly the euro. There are also some coin making artefacts and you can buy commemorative coins from the Maltese mint. Whilst it is a small museum, it is worth having a look as it is next to the Upper Barrakka Gardens and the Muza art museum.

I visited here to buy a Maltese Euro coin set. Make sure you know what coins you want before you arrive, you can check them out on their website.

Just another building

Come here to take in the surrounding views. The bank itself is housed in just another regular building so no big deal.

We came in for the coins but it was closed.

Despite us visiting the central bank during the work hours (at least, as mentioned on the door), as we wanted to see some Maltese coins, the place was closed shut.
Too bad, but at least we could examine the interesting building from the outside.

For coins in Malta, this is THE place!
Nov 2016 • Family
Central Banks do not always seem to get on to TripAdvisor (the Icelandic equivalent was not on when we went in 2016) so it is good to see this here. The security guard asked me what I wanted and as soon as I mentioned "coins" he let me in. There was a good exhibition of Maltese coins through the ages. They could have been better illuminated but the content was all there. There were also display cases of coins that could be bought. You have to ask to buy them - then the attendant calls for a cashier who takes your order and brings the coins for inspection. All very grand and efficient. The only downside was that the bank only sells €2 commemorative coins in large packs. I only wanted one of each so he sent me back to the Post Office round the corner where they have decided to charge a premium for them: up to €5 for a €2 coin! Anyway, the Bank does sell single non-circulating coins, like the silver €10 coins celebrating 450 years of Valletta or 450 years since the Great Siege. Note that these are cheaper than elsewhere on the island.
So, well worth a visit whether you are buying or not!
