Latvijas Banka issues a set of collector coins dedicated to poet Eduards Veidenbaums

05.10.2017

On Thursday, 5 October, Latvijas Banka is issuing a unique set of collector coins dedicated to the outstanding Latvian poet Eduards Veidenbaums (1867–1892). The set of two coins forms a stylised image of a pair of spectacles. The face value of each silver coin is 2.5 euro.

The author of the graphic design of the coin set "Eduards Veidenbaums" is Arvīds Priedīte, and the plaster models were created by Ligita Franckeviča. The coin set has been struck by Koninklijke Nederlandse Munt (the Netherlands).

According to the concept of artist Arvīds Priedīte, the set of both coins forms an image of stylised spectacles associated with Eduards Veidenbaums: we recognise him from the single authentic photo that has survived up to now. The obverse of one coin features clouds, the facsimile signature of Eduards Veidenbaums and a line of his verse "Tiem vēlētos es līdzi tālu skriet…" (I'd love to follow them far away...). The obverse of the other coin depicts clouds and a line "Tur tālumā, kur ziemas nepazīst" (Far away where winter never comes). The reverse of both coins features a horizontal trail of human footprints in the snow.

The price of the coin set at Latvijas Banka is EUR 80.00. The issue limit is 3000. As of 5 October, it will be on sale at Latvijas Banka Cashier's Offices (K. Valdemāra iela 1B in Riga and Teātra iela 3 in Liepāja).

Latvian collector coins "The Earth" and "Christmas Battles" gain recognition at the international contest Coin Constellation

29.09.2017

Latvian collector coins "The Earth" and "Christmas Battles" gained recognition at Coin Constellation – 2017, the 11th international collector coin contest organised by the Water Mark Publishing House. 268 coins from 27 countries participated in the contest. An international panel of judges assessed the coins in eight award categories.

The Coin "The Earth", made of perlucor with a silver outer ring and issued by Latvijas Banka in 2016, was the winner in the category Original Technology. The author of the coin's graphic design is architect Mārcis Kalniņš. The jewel-like Earth is enclosed by a diaphanous veil representing the Universe where the planet Earth is floating as an island of life. The coin enables anyone to have a look at it from an unusual perspective in order to better grasp the insignificance of the Earth in the vastness of the Universe and its irreplaceable importance for us at the same time. 

The silver collector coin "Christmas Battles" was awarded the second place in the category Successful Artistic Solution. The author of the coin's graphic design is Kristaps Ģelzis, and Ligita Franckeviča created its plaster model. The idea of the coin design emerged in Kristaps Ģelzis' mind when he visited the Christmas Battle Museum in Jelgava County. He was deeply impressed by some small details: cartridge cases, a belt buckle deformed by an impact of a bullet, rust from a shrapnel in a tree trunk, and barely visible old entrenchments.

Latvijas Banka issues a collector coin "Gold Brooches. The Horseshoe Fibula"

30.08.2017

On Thursday, 31 August, Latvijas Banka is issuing a new 20 euro gold collector coin "Gold Brooches. The Horseshoe Fibula". The coin replicating a horseshoe fibula continues the series of gold collector coins dedicated to Latvia's centenary. In November 2016, a collector coin featuring a disc fibula was issued, but in 2018, the anniversary year, this series will be concluded with a golden collector coin replicating a bubble fibula.

Pakavsaktas 641x300a 003

The graphic design of the collector coin "Gold Brooches. The Horseshoe Fibula" has been created by Ingūna Elere, and the plaster model – by Solvita Rulle. According to the concept of artist Ingūna Elere, the brooch featured on the coin provides centuries-old information, while the hashtags highlighting the times we live in are located on the obverse of the coin.  The brooch tells us a story about ancient times in Latvia's history, but the reverse of the coin – about the present day, i.e. how we communicate in the virtual environment and social networks, and how we select topics important to us.

As of 31 August the coin will be on sale at Latvijas Banka Cashier's Offices:

  •   K. Valdemāra iela 1B, Riga;
  •   Teātra iela 3, Liepaja.

New silver collector coin "Fairy Tale Coin III. The Old Man's Mitten"

28.03.2017

On Tuesday, 28 March, Latvijas Banka is issuing a new silver collector coin "Fairy Tale Coin III. The Old Man's Mitten".

This is the third collector coin in the series "Fairy Tale Coins", which is dedicated to Latvian fairy tales, so much loved and cherished. The first two coins in this series were "Fairy Tale Coin I. Five Cats", issued in 2015, and "Fairy Tale Coin II. The Hedgehog's Coat", issued in 2016.

The coin celebrates fairy tale about an old man's mitten, with its message being communicated through a seemingly funny and innocent yet somewhat sadly-ending story. The lesson of wise living is presented in a metaphorical form: in the name of universal happiness, every human being must learn to include all living things in the circle of their respect, compassion and empathy, to lend a helping hand to the miserable, to support and to assist.

The author of the coin's graphic design is artist Arvīds Priedīte, and this is his 14th collector coin design. The plaster model has been made by Jānis Strupulis, co-author of many collector coins.

The coin's maximum mintage is limited to 10 000. The price of the coin at Latvijas Banka Cashier's Offices is 47.00 euro. As of 28 March, it will be on sale at Latvijas Banka Cashier's Offices (K. Valdemāra iela 1B in Riga and Teātra iela 3 in Liepāja).
