Knights and heraldry topics are interesting to a wide range of people, in part because of the many fantastical stories that revolve around them. Collectibles related to these niches can range from historic artifacts and reproductions to coins that reflect similar themes. The 2021 Antique Malta Knights of the Past 2 oz Silver Coin is a stunning example of one of those coins.
A high-relief design combined with an antique finish and high-quality minting brings the scene on the obverse of this 2021 Antique Malta Knights of the Past Silver Coin to life. The almost three-dimensional scene shows three knights in the foreground before a castle. The knights are charging and riding into battle, and the closest knight holds up his sword. The sword itself is finished in gold for one eye-catching detail among many. The inscriptions on the obverse of this coin read KNIGHTS OF THE PAST and 10 EURO.
Three-dimensional looks also grace the reverse of this coin, which features the Central Bank of Malta’s coat of arms. MALTA and 2021 are inscribed on the reverse. The overall design shows an up-close image of a knight holding a shield. The coat of arms is included on the shield and depicts two more knightley figures standing next to a smaller shield.
The coin arrives in a plastic capsule for protection and comes with a presentation box, offering a luxe display option. You’ll also receive a Certificate of Authenticity. The coin itself is part of a numbered minting, and you’ll find the number as an inscription on the bottom edge of the coin.
The Verdala Palace, which is the castle featured on the obverse of the coin, was built in 1586. It’s the current summer home of the President of Malta. The historic Knights of Malta was a religious order of knights founded in Jerusalem in the 11th century. They were also known as the Hospitallers, and they spent their time engaged at war in the Holy Land and helping sick people. After the Crusades, the order eventually ended up in Malta, where it ruled until it was defeated by Napoleon.
