Central bank issues another special coin

On Tuesday, 3 November, Latvijas Banka - the Latvian central bank - will issue a 2 euro commemorative coin to mark 30 years of the European Union flag.

It will be available for exchange at the Cashier's Offices of Latvijas Banka in Riga and Liepāja as of Tuesday, 3 November. 10 000 uncirculated coins in special souvenir packing will also be struck and can be bought for €7.30.

This 2 euro coin is jointly issued by the euro area countries.

The design shows the EU flag surrounded by stick men and bears the inscription "LATVIJA", and similar to all other 2 euro circulation coins of the Republic of Latvia, the edge lettering is "DIEVS * SVĒTĪ * LATVIJU" (GOD BLESS LATVIA).

The European or common side of commemorative coins, is the same as regular 2 euro circulation coins.

1 million coins will be issued in total.

"The experience of Latvijas Banka shows that this volume is sufficient to meet the demand, at least for several weeks, from all interested parties," the bank said in a statement.
