The national side of the coins bears the Vytis, the coat of arms of the Republic of Lithuania, surrounded by the inscription LIETUVA (LITHUANIA) and the year of issue (2018) arranged in a semi-circle. The coins also feature the 12 stars of the European flag. On the national side of the commemorative coin, the three Baltic States are symbolically represented as a braid. They are united by their history: a common past, present and future. A stylised numeral representing the 100th anniversary and the heraldic signs of all three states are featured as well. The inscription of the country’s name and the year of issue (2018) are depicted in a semi-circle. The mintmark of the Lithuanian Mint and the mark of the designer are also included. The 12 stars are incorporated in the outer part of the design, set out as they are on the flag of the European Union.


The common side of €2 and €1, 50, 20 and 10 euro cent coins features a geographical image of Europe. The common side of 5, 2 and 1 euro cent coins shows Europe in relation to Africa and Asia on a globe.
