Latvia 10 cents - Greater coat of arms of Latvia

Krause - MishlerKM# 153
Details

The rising sun is a symbol of national sovereignty. It is the distinctive feature of the "Latvian riflemen", who fought against the Germans in the First World War. The three stars above the shield symbolise the union of the three Latvian cantons (Courland, Livonia and Latgale), which make up Latvia as we know it today. These regions are also depicted by a lion and a griffin. The Latvian national coat of arms was designed by the Latvian artist Rihards Zarins. The proper use of the Latvian coat of arms is firmly regulated. Three types of symbol are used — the large coat of arms, the small enhanced coat of arms and the small coat of arms.

  • The Large Coat of Arms is used by the President of Latvia, the Parliament, the Prime Minister, the Cabinet of Ministers, government ministries, the Supreme Court and Prosecutor General, as well as Latvian diplomatic and consular missions.
  • The Small Enhanced Coat of Arms is used by the Parliament agencies, the Cabinet of Ministers and other institutions under direct or indirect supervision of the government ministries.
  • The Small Coat of Arms is used by other government institutions, municipal authorities and educational institutions on official documents.

Latvia 1 euro - Latvian maiden

Krause - MishlerKM# 156
Details

The folk maiden depicted on the one-euro coin is a symbol of both traditional virtue and Latvian national currency, for it was this same portrait that adorned the reverse of the silver five-lats coin designed for the newly independent Latvian state by Rihards Zarins in the 1920s. The young Latvian woman is portrayed with braided hair, a crown and ears of corn thrown over her shoulder. The latter was meant to be symbolic of Latvian culture which was strongly influenced by agriculture.

Originally, it was planned that Freedom Monument would be featured on the 2 euro coin, but the original design did not meet the regulations of the ECB since it reached out into the ring of the coin and changed one of the stars.

SpecificationsDiameter - 23.25mm Thickness - 2.33mm Weight - 7.5gr
CompositionBiAlloy (Nk/Ng), ring Nickel brass (75% copper - 20% zinc - 5% nickel), center Cupronickel (75% copp
