The fairy tale "Cat's Mill" from Kārlis Skalbe's "Winter Tales" (1913) is included in the Latvian Cultural Canon and was recognized as the Latvian people's most beloved literary work in "The Big Read" poll in 2014. The cat's mill has filled the heart and soul of nearly every Latvian with warm compassion.

The moral of the fairy tale is: do not spread evil and learn to forgive. Other values taught by this fairy tale are honesty, diligence and love. The fairy tale's multi-faceted message is useful at any age.

Latvijas Banka will issue a 2 euro commemorative coin "The Rising Sun" this autumn

03.04.2019

Latvijas Banka plans to issue a 2 euro commemorative coin "The Rising Sun" dedicated to the history of the Coat of Arms of Latvia this autumn.

The motif of a rising sun was very popular at the time of the foundation of the Latvian state. The rising sun symbolised the new country.

The sun motif created by artist Ansis Cīrulis in 1915 was first reproduced on the badges of the Latvian Riflemen Battalion and on the flag of the 1st Daugavgrīva Latvian Riflemen Battalion.

It was also part of the design proposal for the symbol of an autonomous Latvia, created by artist Ansis Cīrulis in 1917. Later on this motif emerged as one of the basic elements of the Coat of Arms of Latvia.

The theme of the rising sun was used several times by Ansis Cīrulis in his work, including the first Latvian postage stamp and the interior decorations of the Ambassadors' Hall of the Riga Castle.

At the same time, by this coin we shall also pay tribute to Ansis Cīrulis artistic contribution to the Latvian culture.

The estimated mintage of the 2 euro commemorative coin "The Rising Sun" is 300 000 pcs and 7 000 coins in BU quality.

Information about the next batch of "Gold Brooches. The Bubble Fibula"

22.11.2018

Due to the great interest in the "Gold Brooches. The Bubble Fibula" and the set "Gold Brooches", Austrian Mint Münze Österreich Aktiengesellschaft is already working on the next part of the mintage. The collector coin and the set are expected in mid-December to have them available before Christmas. As the coin production process is complicated, approximately 400 coins will be available this year, but the exact number will be determined after receiving and inspecting the coins.

Gold Brooches. The Bubble Fibula

Information about the expected sales date will be announced at the beginning of December. 

Keep up to date with all the latest news on collector coins at www.e-monetas.lv or subscribe to our newsletter.

As Christmas and New Year approaches, we would like to invite you to take a look at other coins available on www.e-monetas.lv as well as the specially designed coin sets for the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Latvia.

A collector's coin is a great idea for a gift – it has a lasting value and it is an artwork made of gold or silver. Each represents a story about the values, personalities or history of Latvia.

"Coin of the Seasons" and "Baroque of Courland", or a more patriotic coin "The First Session of LPNC" would be suitable gifts for Christmas and New Year. However, art lovers would especially apreciate the coin "Janis Rozentāls" in a beautiful gift box. 

Numismatic products are available for purchase: 

  •          at Latvijas Banka Cashier's Offices (K. Valdemāra iela 1B in Riga and Teātra iela 3 in Liepāja);

Collector coin "Gold Brooches. The Bubble Fibula"

05.11.2018

On Thursday, 8 November, Latvijas Banka is issuing a new gold collector coin "Gold Brooches. The Bubble Fibula" with the face value of 75 euro.

The coin replicating a bubble fibula is the last one in the series of euro gold collector coins dedicated to Latvia's centenary.

A set of all three gold coins: "Gold Brooches. The Disc Fibula", "Gold Brooches. The Horseshoe Fibula",  and "Gold Brooches. The Bubble Fibula" will also be available for purchase as of 8 November.

For several centuries bubble fibulae were characteristic for the territory of the present-day Latvia: the luxurious brooches worn by women represented not just ordinary jewellery but also significant value of that time. They became an integral part of the Latvian national costumes. Latvijas Banka's gold collector coin dedicated to bubble fibula will also be special among the gifts dedicated to Latvia on its centenary: it will be as a significant and valuable reminder of this historical milestone in gold as a token of our cultural and historical experience.

The author of the graphic design of the collector coin "Gold Brooches. The Bubble Fibula" is Ingūna Elere, and the plaster model was created by Jānis Strupulis. Ingūna Elere is the author of all three coins of the gold brooches series.

Latvijas Banka will issue a collector coin "Coats of Arms Coin"

18.10.2018

On Tuesday, 23 October, Latvijas Banka is issuing a silver collector coin "Coats of Arms Coin" dedicated to Latvia's centenary.

The euro collector coin bearing the images of the great coat of arms of the Republic of Latvia and the coats of arms of its cultural and historical regions is Latvijas Banka's contribution to Latvia's centenary. A new country, the Republic of Latvia, was founded on 18 November 1918. The complicated course of Latvia's history is reflected in its heraldic symbols.

The coat of arms along with the flag and anthem symbolised national independence. Therefore, people who used it during the years of Latvia's occupation ran the risk of punishment. It was in 1990 that the coat of arms regained its legitimacy as a token of independence, but in 1991 it was once again renewed as a symbol of the independent Republic of Latvia.

The collector coin "Coats of Arms Coin" mintage: 3 000 coins.

Price: EUR 53.00.

Available for purchase as of 23 October starting from 8.30 a.m. (local time):

  •          at Latvijas Banka Cashier's Offices (K. Valdemāra iela 1B in Riga and Teātra iela 3 in Liepāja);
  •          online at e-monetas.lv. Please see the terms of purchase and delivery at e-monetas.lv here.
