|Malta started a series of five 2 euro commemorative coins, all related to the Maltese constitutional history, which includes the following coins: 2011 - First Election of Representatives in 1849, 2012 - 1887 Majority Representation, 2013 - Establishment of Self-Government in 1921, 2014 - Independence from Britain in 1964 and 2015 - Proclamation of the Republic of Malta in 1974
Malta achieved its independence on 21 September 1964 (Independence Day) after intense negotiations with the United Kingdom, led by Maltese Prime Minister George Borg Olivier. Under its 1964 constitution, Malta initially retained Queen Elizabeth II as Queen of Malta and thus Head of State, with a Governor-General exercising executive authority on her behalf.
