Welcome to my Coins of Malta web site. This site has images of all the coins in my collection, which includes coins from the Roman period when Malta and Gozo were called Melita and Gaulos, and coins of the Knights of Malta, that were minted in Malta between 1530 and 1798.
There is also a link to my study of the coins of the Knights of Malta, where my aim is to catalogue every variety of coins that were minted by the Knights in Malta.
You will also find links to other items of interest including a brief history of each Grand Master, articles, list of books on the subject and other private collections.
I hope you enjoy your visit.
I won 3 Knights of Malta coin at the Aurora auction held November 2017. Unfortunately, these coins were lost (or stolen) while being sent by UPS. I have since had my money returned by Aurora who was fully supportive.
The three coins lost are pictured below: –
1- 1558 Vallete Tari. the only one known of this variety and one of two known of the 1558 Tari coin. The other one is in the private museum the Ritterhaus Bubikon Switzerland.
2 – Undated Vallete 4 Tari. The only one known of the variety.
3 – 1628 De Paule 4 Tari. Only 4 1628 4 Tari are known, 3 of which are in museums.
I will be looking at every auction as I will know the coins if the come up. Please advise me if you see them.
