Malta banknotes - Malta paper money
After gaining independence from Britain in 1964, the Maltese Government established the Central Bank of Malta in 1967, which started operations in 1968. The Bank assumed responsibility for the issue and control of currency notes and coins.
At the time, Malta’s paper currency consisted of three different £1 and 10s notes. The Bank decided to promote a unified pattern by issuing its own notes. Thus, in 1968, the Central Bank of Malta issued its first £5 and 10s notes, both printed at Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co. Ltd. The notes had the same design as the 1961 and 1963 notes but the colour changed from blue to dark brown for the £5 note and from green to red for the 10s note.
In 1969, when the old notes had been depleted, the Bank issued its first £1 note in olive green, but with the same design as the previous £1 of 1963.
All the previous notes printed by the Currency Board in 1951, 1961 and 1963, stopped being legal tender in Malta in December 1969.
