Latvia to issue Ukrainian tribute coin in 2023

Latvijas Banka (LB), the Latvian central bank, said August 22 it will issue a 2 euro commemorative coin dedicated to Ukraine at the beginning of 2023.

"The national side of the coin will depict one of the symbols of the Ukrainian people in the fight for peace – a sunflower. Ukraine is the world's largest sunflower grower/producer and exporter of sunflower oil. However, sunflowers are important not only from the point of view of the national economy – since Russia started the cruel war in Ukraine, the sunflower has also become a global symbol of peace," said LB.

Latvijas Banka plans to issue the 2 euro commemorative coin in both souvenir packaging (in Brilliant Uncirculated quality) and circulation quality (rolls).

Estonia has also announced plans for a Ukrainian coin, with a different design, as reported by ERR News.
