Circulation euro coins 

Since 1 January 2015, the monetary unit of the Republic of Lithuania has been the euro. It is made up of 100 cents.

Currently, circulation euro coins are used in eight denominations: 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, and 50 cent, €1 and €2. They have a common and a national side. 
The 5, 2, and 1 cent coins show Europa in relation to Africa and Asia on a globe.
There are two versions of the common side designs of €2 and €1, 50, 20 and 10 cent coins: the first one depicts the European Union before its extension on 1 May 2004; the second one shows the geographical depiction of the European Union (after 1 January 2007). 
The national side of euro coins indicates the issuing country. It features elements of each country and the 12 stars of the European flag. Even though the national side of euro coins differs, all euro coins are legal tender anywhere in the euro area.

Lithuania’s euro coins show the coat of arms of the Republic of Lithuania, Vytis.
€2 coins with a different design on the national side are commemorative coins. These coins commemorate events of national and European importance.
€1 and €2 coins (highest denomination) are two-coloured (silver and gold). 10, 20 and 50 cent coins are gold-coloured, while 1, 2 and 5 cent coins (lowest denomination) are copper-coloured.
