Bank of Lithuania


The minimalistic obverse of the coin features a pointer arrow of a measuring instrument, having reached its critical limit. This is a symbol of collision with one’s own existence – before taking a potentially fateful step, a person begins to doubt the meaningfulness of everyday choices taken while rushing through life. The obverse also features the mintmark of the Lithuanian Mint. 


The reverse of the coin depicts a ray of light illuminating the year 2020 which is the main symbol of the coin dedicated to Hope. The shadows stretching from the numbers of the date form the international distress signal SOS (Save Our Souls): humankind should and must stop, come together and make future-oriented decisions. The mystical scenographic composition on the reverse testifies to the enlightenment experienced when you least expect it, just when there seems to be no more hope. The coin also features the inscription LIETUVA (LITHUANIA) and the denomination (€1.50).
