Malta, 10 cents, 1976.



This is another coin of the region that shows dolphins and a ship.

See: Malta's pre-euro coinage, 1972-2007.

It also shows an owl. It is not an attribute of Pallas Athena, but the mark of Raymond Joly. However, the style is unlike Joly, so I wonder if he didn't sign in his capacity of chief engraver of the Paris mint and another engraver at the mint produced the design.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Numista says of the reverse design: Engraver: V. Falireas.

Makes sense. Vassilis Falireas seems to have engraved the majority, if not all Greek coins of the 50s and 60s. Even more, his name is at 4 o'clock against the edge on the second picture. Joly's role must have been minimal at best.
