Invest in the new Europa Silver Coin, a stunning and striking piece of art which features the Goddess Europa. Her myth inspired authors, writers and artists to give her name to the European continent. She was said to represent the epitome of feminine beauty on Earth….
According to Greek mythology, Zeus was so besotted by Europa that he decided to transform himself into a white bull. The main reason was to escape from the jealousy of his wife and allow him to abduct Europa and carry her from Phoenicia to Crete.
The obverse of the coin depicts a youthful and beautiful Europa riding the magnificent bull. She looks elegant and determined, fierce and brave, holding the bull’s collar in one hand. Europa and Zeus/the bull are surrounded by turbulent waters and are both looking in the same direction: Crete which they are trying to reach.
The design has been created by Jody Clark who is one of the major designers, and who has portrayed Elizabeth II’s on many coins. You can see his initials on the right hand side of the bull and Goddess. The obverse features the engraved wording Europa and the Bull, the purity 999.9, the metal “Fine Silver” and the weight “1oz”
The reverse of this coin represents the coat of arms of the Central Bank of Malta. The design contains in Latin, the motto, "Fiducia Fortis" - "In Confidence Strength," and "1968", the date of the Bank's foundation.
Malta’s reference has been chosen because of its links to Europa which date back to 750 B.C when the Phoenicians (from the ancient region along the eastern coast of the Mediterranean) settled on Malta. It was for them the ideal mid-point for their trading routes.
Here can be found on top of the coin ‘Central Bank of Malta” and at the bottom the value of the coin: 1.50 euros
