Each year November is the patriotic month. On 18 November 1918, the state of Latvia was established. On 19 November 1919, when foreign forces were still present in the territory of Latvia, heavy battles were ongoing to protect the newly established state, and the army of Latvia gained a significant victory over the Bermont forces by freeing Pārdaugava.

In the light of the upcoming celebrations, only the coins dedicated to patriotic themes are now  available for a special price!

Latvijas Banka is issuing a collector coin "Freedom Fights (1918–1920)"

31.10.2019

On Thursday, 7 November, Latvijas Banka is issuing a silver collector coin "Freedom Fights (1918–1920)" dedicated to the Latvian War of Independence and all those people who helped to win independence and hold freedom in high esteem.

The Republic of Latvia was born on the ruins of empires that had collapsed as a result of World War I. It took more than one and a half years for the people of Latvia to defend the newly acquired freedom and defeat external and internal enemies with weapons in hands. The military and political fight demonstrated the political maturity of the Latvian nation, its selflessness and the right to live in independent, democratic and free Latvia.

One of the most significant and complicated stages in the history of Latvia was the period between the proclamation of the Republic of Latvia on 18 November 1918 and the signing of the Peace Treaty with the Soviet Russia on 11 August 1920. It reflects the nature of the particular historical process in a concise manner, i.e. the Latvian people's fight for the existence and independence of their national state.

The graphic design and plaster model of the collector coin have been created by artist Andris Vārpa. A stylised march of fighters depicted in the Cubist manner and a soldier bidding farewell to his fiancée are featured on the obverse. The red-white-red flag of Latvia with broken entrenchment barriers on each of its sides is depicted on the reverse.

The coin has been struck by UAB Lietuvos monetų kalykla (Lithuania).

Price: EUR 50.
Maximum mintage: 4000 coins.
Purchase limit: 2 coins.

At this stage, only part of it has been minted, i.e. 3000 coins will be released on sale on 7 November.

Available for purchase as of 7 November starting from 8.30 a.m. (local time): 

The building of Latvijas Banka in Riga will be open and the tickets from the queue regulator facility will be available from 7 a.m.

Latvijas Banka will issue a 2 euro commemorative coin "Latgalian Ceramics" next spring

29.10.2019

Latvijas Banka plans to issue a 2 euro commemorative coin "Latgalian Ceramics" dedicated to the Latgalian pottery next spring.

The traditional pottery established itself for substantial periods of time in two districts, Latgale and Kurzeme, but only in Latgale it has survived throughout the times and has been passed down to the next generations.

The Latgalian pottery is included in the Latvian Culture Canon and it represents one of the brightest pages of traditional culture.

The national side of the coin will depict a characteristic piece of Latgalian ceramics – clay candelabrum. It will also bear an inscription LATGALES KERAMIKA (Latgalian ceramics), the country name (LATVIJA) as well as the year of issue (2020).

The graphic design of the national side of the new commemorative coin has been created by artist Gundega Rancāne, but the author of the plaster model is Jānis Strupulis. The common side of the coin bearing the nominal value (artist Luc Luycx) is the same as that of other 2 euro circulation coins, including material and size.

The estimated mintage of the 2 euro commemorative coin "Latgalian Ceramics" is 400 000 pcs, 5 000 coins in BU quality and 7000 coins in coin sets.

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);

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);
