Definitive Issue - Additional Values from MALTA

Stamp Name: Definitive Issue - Additional Values.
Malta Post has issued a philatelic set of two stamps which add to the Definitive set that was originally issued on 29 December 2009.
The set depicts a gold coin (Byzantine Period) and the George Cross Medal (British Period). As well as having different background colours, the two stamps bear additional values to reflect the increased postage tariff that was introduced on 29 July 2011. 500,000 stamps carry a face value of ˆ0.20 while 40,000 stamps carry a face value of ˆ0.69.
