  • Five pub quiz questions – Quick Quiz
    As a change from our usual helping of country-related trivia, here's a tasty selection of five "pub quiz" type general knowledge questions. Have a go!

Money matters

Lire found

No, really... it does!
But does it matter more in Malta than at home?

NO ADVERTISING - financial services adverts belong in our classifieds section. Get-rich-quick schemes belong in the trash.

Lire found

Oh no - I just found a small stash of lire that I had forgotten about. Does anyone know if I am too late to change them - and if not, what I can do about it?

Hi

coins can be changed until 1/2/10 this year, notes 31/1/2018

you can either take them to the Central Bank (near the bus station in Valletta), or donate them to your favourite animal charity in Gozo :D

edit: beaten to it :D

I wonder what animal charity that could possibly be? Thanks Mark and Greg - and yes, there will be a donation!

:D

At Gozo SPCA we are still getting Lira donated - seems to go with the season - lots came in when the bad weather started, presumably people putting on the winter coats and finding coins (and notes :D ) in their coat pockets. Where is the weirdest place you have found Lira money since the changeover? - someone told me (Greg ?) their children "post" coins in the unused keyholes of the internal house doors, and they found plenty there. For us its been the usual - back of the settee, under the seats of the car....

Great to hear that your favourite animal charity is getting donations. :D

Hi PJ

seems that sorting out of boxes has paid for a glass of wine or even a bottle
