Malta banknotes - Malta paper money
The 5th series of banknotes was issued in 1989 to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Malta’s independence. The banknotes depict the Edward Caruana Dingli allegorical figure of Melita holding a rudder. This represented Malta taking control of her own destiny.

Maltese banknotes were replaced by euro when Malta became a member of the euro area and adopted the euro as its currency on 1 January 2008. Subsequently, the Maltese currency remained legal tender until 31 January 2008. However Maltese banknotes can still be exchanged for euro at the Central Bank of Malta for up to ten years after being demonetised, that is, till 31 January 2018.
