The inscription of the country’s name and the year of issue (2018) are depicted in a semi-circle. The mark of the Lithuanian Mint and the mark of the designer are also included.

Coin description

1918 was a momentous year for the three Baltic States – Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania: all three countries freed themselves from foreign rule and founded independent states. Now, 100 years later, we have much more in common than just our history, as we are united by the European Union and the shared currency we use, the euro.

To mark the centenary of the Baltic States, Eesti Pank, Latvijas Banka and Lietuvos bankas decided to issue a €2 commemorative coin with the same design for all three countries.
