Edited by tiko165

The 1- and 2-euro coins show a portrait of a Latvian folk-maid, originally depicted on the reverse of the 5-lats silver coin in 1929.


On the left, in semi-circle, the word ‘LATVIJAS’ and the year ‘2014’ and on the right, in semi-circle, the word ‘REPUBLIKA’.


The coin's outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.


The edge-lettering of the 2-euro coin is the first line of the State anthem — ‘DIEVS SVETI LATVIJU’ (‘GOD BLESS LATVIA’).
