The national side of the coin features a coat of arms with an armour-clad knight holding a sword in his right hand. The coat of arms is held by two angels, symbolically exalting and protecting Aukštaitija – one of the most important regions of Lithuania and the cradle of its statehood. Below is a Latin inscription PATRIAM TUAM MUNDUM EXISTIMA (consider your homeland to be the whole world).
The composition is surrounded by inscriptions LIETUVA (Lithuania) and AUKŠTAITIJA, the year of issue (2020) and the mintmark of the Lithuanian Mint. The coin’s outer ring bears the 12 stars of the European Union flag.
