This coin is the second in a series of seven that will honor Malta's prehistoric monuments that are listed by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites.

First excavated in 1839, the remains of Hagar Qim suggest a date between 3600 – 3200 BC, a period known as the Ġgantija phase in Maltese prehistory. Ħaġar Qim was in fact never completely buried as the tallest stones, remained exposed and featured in 18th and 19th century paintings. Haġar Qim is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, inscribed as part of ‘The Megalithic Temples of Malta’ in the World Heritage List.

The obverse shows a representation of the Hagar Qim temples. The reverse carries the common design for the 2 euro coin. The €2 commemorative coin has only been issued with a low limit of 405,000 coins (350,000 uncirculated in rolls with F mint mark, 25,000 in the BU sets with F mint mark and 30,000 in BU quality packaged in a coin card with Pessac mint mark).
