I have just read the document issued by the National Council for the Maltese Language entitled ‘Report of the National Council for the Maltese Language on the Name of the European Currency in Maltese, Ewro’ published in 2005. In this report it was established that the Maltese word for the euro currency is to be ewro.
However, although Maltese is one of the official languages of the European Union, unlike the Greek euro coins which carry the Greek word ευρω our €1 and €2 coins do not feature the officially approved Maltese word ewro, but euro. Shouldn’t our coins be minted with the correct word in Maltese?
