Latvijas Banka issues the very first 2 euro commemorative coin of special design "Riga – European Capital of Culture 2014".
The new €10 will start circulating on 23 September 2014.
As a result of a national competition of ideas, it was decided that the Latvian 1 euro and 2 would feature a historic symbol: the profile of a Latvian folk maid, an image used on the silver 5 lats coin. 10 cent, 20 cent and 50 cent coins would feature the large coat of arms of the Republic of Latvia, whereas 1 cent, 2 cent and 5 cent coins would depict the small coat of arms of the Republic of Latvia.
