Europa Star 2016-2020 is a five-year program bringing together mints from across the euro area for the issuance of collector silver proof coins. The themes selected for the series are inspired from Europe’s history, each year highlighting a different era:

2016 Modern 20th Century
2017 The Age of Iron and Glass
2018 Baroque and Rococo
2019 Renaissance
2020 Gothic

This is Malta's contribution to the pan-European Europa Star (eurostar) series for 2018, and highlights what has been termed the “Age of Baroque & Rococo.”

The reverse features the marble sculpture "The Baptism of Christ" by Giuseppe Mazzuoli (1641-1725). This massive work of art is found at the main altar in St John's Co-Cathedral in Valletta, Malta, and is one of the country's foremost expressions of Baroque art.

In 1666, a project for the main altar by Malta's greatest sculptor, Melchiorre Cafà, was approved and begun. Cafà intended a large sculpture group in bronze depicting the Baptism of Christ. Following Cafà's tragical death in 1667 in a foundry accident while working on this work in Rome, the plans were abandoned. Only in 1703, Giuseppe Mazzuoli, Cafà's only pupil, finished a marble group of the Baptism of Christ which might have been influenced by his master's undocumented designs.
