On Wednesday, 31 January 2018, Latvijas Banka is launching a 2 euro commemorative coin dedicated to the centenary of the Baltic States.
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Latvian and Estonian states and the 100th anniversary of the re-establishment of the Lithuanian statehood, Latvijas Banka, Lietuvos bankas and Eesti Pank have issued a 2 euro commemorative coin with a common design. The design of the national side of the coin was selected in a public on-line vote to commemorate the Baltic nations' determination to defend their independence. The coin confirms the unity of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia and their readiness to cooperate defending their independence and freedom and symbolises the common past, present and future of the Baltic States.
On Monday, 4 December, the Cashier's Offices of Latvijas Banka and the sales platform e-monetas.lv will launch the sale of the silver collector coin "The First Session of LPNC". The coin is dedicated to the first session of the Latvian Provisional National Council (LPNC) held in Valka 100 years ago, one of the most significant events towards establishing Latvia's statehood.
The graphic design of the collector coin "The First Session of LPNC" was created by artist Ivars Drulle. The coin was struck by Koninklijke Nederlandse Munt (the Netherlands).
Tomorrow, on 14 November 2017, Latvijas Banka is issuing 2 euro commemorative coins dedicated to Kurzeme and Latgale.
