This is Malta's contribution to the pan-European Europa Star (eurostar) series for 2017, and highlights what has been termed the “Age of Iron & Glass.” This was a movement in the late 19th and early 20th centuries that was often associated with elements of romanticism and nationalism.

The reverse of the coins depicts the Argotti Botanical Gardens Conservatory (greenhouse). This iron and glass structure, which was designed by architect Andrea Vassallo, was a novelty for Malta. The conservatory was an aesthetically pleasing structure, but its upkeep was very expensive and in 1931 the Government decided to dismantle it.
