The Philatelic Bureau of MaltaPost p.l.c. will issue on 7th March 2012, a philatelic set of two stamps which add to the Definitive set that was originally issued on 29 December 2009.

The set of two stamps 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.
