The Rising Sun

Obverse

The motif of a rising sun was very popular at the time of the foundation of the Latvian state. The rising sun symbolised the new country. With the help of artist Ivars Drulle, the sun motif created by artist Ansis Cīrulis and emerging as one of the basic elements of the Coat of Arms of Latvia has reborn into the commemorative coin "The Rising Sun".

The graphic design and plaster model of the national side of the new commemorative coin has been created by artist Ivars Drulle,
