Latvijas Banka's Collector Coins: Excellence in Minting, Pride in Presenting. 

"Smith Forges in the Sky" named Latvia's Coin of the Year 2017, "Eduards Veidenbaums" recognised as the most Artistic Coin

09.05.2018

In the traditional public voting, the collector coin "Smith Forges in the Sky" was voted Latvia's Coin of the Year 2017 getting almost 2 300 votes out of more than 7 000 votes. The graphic design of the collector coin was created by artist Edgars Folks and the author of the plaster model was Ligita Franckeviča.

'In the Latvian mythology, a heavenly smith, called Thunder or Father Thunder, was forging in the sky pouring down rain as nourishment required for the fertility and prosperity and throwing lightning balls all around. This coin invites us to look up at the sky. Not only rain or snow may come down, but we could also become enlightened as to how we should continue with our lives,  each of us as an individual and all of us together. This coin possesses magical power,' says Janīna Kursīte, literary scholar,  scientific consultant of the Coin Design Commission of Latvijas Banka.

The expert commission of the Latvian National Museum of Art recognised the collector coin "Eduards Veidenbaums" as the best coin in terms of the artistic solution in 2017. 'With the two round coins and the coin etui creating an association with Veidenbaums' legendary glasses, its rare face value (2.5 euro per coin, totalling 5 euro), and the double emotional code of the visual solution, this pair of coins is a truly extraordinary and praiseworthy tribute to the personality of poet Eduards Veidenbaums,' underlines Inese Baranovska, director of the Museum of Decorative Arts and Design.

Both award-winning coins and other coins minted in 2017 are still available at the Cashier's Offices of Latvijas Banka in Riga and Liepāja as well as online at e-monetas.lv. Six coins conveying messages about Latvia's culture, history and people were issued 2017: "Fairy Tale Coin III. The Old Man's Mitten", "Gold brooches. The Horseshoe Fibula", "Eduards Veidenbaums", "The First Session of LPNC", "Smith Forges in the Sky" and "Latgale Congress".
