Engraver: Noel Galea


Coat of arms between 1975 and 1988, the new name of the Republic of Malta and the date display on the outside.

The coat of arms was adopted on the 11 July 1975, seven months after Malta became a republic. It showed a coastal scene with the rising sun, a traditional Maltese boat (Luzzu), a shovel and a pitchfork, and an Opuntia. The emblem was controversial since it was not heraldic, and it was replaced by the current coat of arms soon after the Nationalists won the 1987 election. It was proposed that the 1964 coat of arms be readopted, but eventually a simplified version of it was chosen.



The evergreen rose (a plant in the family Rosaceae, a climbing perennial with very prickly stems) and value.
