This release celebrates the 450th anniversary of the foundation of Malta's capital city, Valletta.

The building of a new fortified city on the heights of the Sceberras peninsula had long been planned. But it was only in the aftermath of the Great Siege of 1565 that the Order of St John with the backing of the Pope and the King of Spain committed itself firmly to this project. The new city was designed by the Pope’s architect Francesco Laparelli and its foundation stone was laid by Grand Master Jean de Valette on 28 March 1566. It was named Valletta in honour of the Grand Master.

The reverse shows the architect Francesco Laparelli and his assistant Gerolamo Cassar conferring with Grand Master Jean de Valette regarding the building of the new fortified city of Valletta.

The coin's obverse features the coat of arms of Malta with the date 2016.
