In 1922, stamps from Malta experienced an evolution , due to the new self-governing status of the crown colony.
During 1921, Malta was granted a new constitution and self-government status within the British Empire. It was still a crown colony, with their defense and foreign affairs directed by Great Britain, and the British sovereign, represented in Malta by the Governor General, who was still the head-of-state. However, within the colony, the Maltese people and their elected representatives were now able to manage all internal civil and political affairs.
To celebrate this new autonomy, Malta overprinted all their current postage stamps and a new series of definitive postage stamps were designed and issued.
