Commemorative issue

100th Anniversary of the Baltic States

Obverse

On the national side, the three Baltic States are symbolically represented as a braid. They are united by their history: a common past, present and future. A stylised numeral representing the 100th anniversary and the heraldic signs of all three states are featured as well. The inscription of the country’s name and the year of issue (2018) are depicted in a semi-circle. The mark of the Lithuanian Mint and the mark of the designer are also included. The 12 stars are incorporated in the outer part of the design, set out as they are on the flag of the European Union.

Comments

1918 was a momentous year for the three Baltic States – Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania: all three countries freed themselves from foreign rule and founded independent states. Now, 100 years later, we have much more in common than just our history, as we are united by the European Union and the shared currency we use, the euro. To mark the centenary of the Baltic States, Eesti Pank, Latvijas Banka and Lietuvos bankas decided to issue a €2 commemorative coin with the same design for all three countries.
