Brief History:

Malta became part of the British Empire in 1814 of its own free will. This followed a joint effort by both parties to oust the French who had took control of the island in 1798.

Independence was granted to Malta in 1964, however Malta elected to remain within the Commonwealth with the British Monarchy as their head of state.

The Grano (introduced before British Rule) was the standard local currency which was equivalent to 1/12 of a penny. Following the inclusion of Malta into the British Colonies, a decision was made to introduce a denomination equivalent to the existing currency in the "British Style" of coinage. Third farthings (1827 - 1913) were produced for use in Malta as British Coinage, but they were only ever circulated within the colony
