The coin "Sunflower for Ukraine", like the previously issued collector coin "For the Freedom of Ukraine", is dedicated to Ukraine's fight for freedom – the income derived from both coins will be donated to Ukraine. Krišs Salmanis, the author of the coin's graphic design, has enshrined the following idea in the commemorative coin: the sun or light we wish Ukraine to reach as soon as possible is like a glimmer of hope for the time being. The national side of the coin depicts one of the symbols of the Ukrainian people in the fight for peace – a sunflower. Ukraine is the world's largest producer of sunflowers and exporter of sunflower oil. However, sunflowers are important not only from the point of view of the national economy – since Russia started the cruel war in Ukraine, the sunflower has also become a global symbol of peace. For the first time, sunflowers were planted in Ukraine as a symbol of peace at the Pervomaisk missile base to mark the removal of nuclear weapons from the country. Currently, sunflowers are used by people all over the world to show unity with the Ukrainian people. The total mintage of the coin "Sunflower for Ukraine" in circulation quality or coins in rolls is 400 000 pieces, whereas that of the coin in Brilliant Uncirculated quality in gift packaging is 15 000 pieces. The price per coin in gift packaging is 15.00 euro – the income derived from each coin sold in gift packaging will be donated to Ukraine.

Feature: The arrival of the French in Malta in 1798

Description: In June 1798, Napoleon Bonaparte ended the rule of the Order of St John in Malta.
