From the Pressburg Mint:

The Maltese cross has become an iconic part of the country of Malta’s heritage and culture over the course of hundreds of years. Most commonly associated with the Knights of Malta, the symbol is now used on everything from coins to the logo of different organizations and institutions internationally. It is said that the points on the cross denote the eight aspirations and obligations of the knights, “to live in truth, have faith, repent one’s sins, give proof of humility, love justice, be merciful, be sincere and wholehearted, and to endure persecution.” To this day, the Maltese cross remains the symbol of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, and organizations dedicated to medical and humanitarian aid and protection.

While this coin is a modern day technologically advanced bullion coin, its origins live in our history. The Maltese cross is an internationally recognized and adored symbol, and bridges the past with the present.
