Reverse

The reverse of the coins features distinctive attributes characteristic of Užgavėnės, a lively end-of-winter celebration: in the centre – Morė, the effigy of winter, which is surrounded by a beggar, a crane, a witch baking pancakes, Lašininis, a symbol of winter, Kanapinis, a symbol of spring, and a goat playing an accordion. The composition is surrounded by the inscriptions UŽGAVĖNĖS and the slogan of the celebration: ŽIEMA, ŽIEMA, BĖK IŠ KIEMO! (WINTER, WINTER GO AWAY FROM OUR YARDS!).
