Latvia 1 lats 2013 - 365

New silver collectors issue:


Latvia is poised on the threshold of important change marked by its historic accession to the euro area. This 1 lats silver coin puts a symbolic full stop to the era of the renewed lats. This number '365' is particularly noteworthy among others, for it makes one recall the days of the year with their endless diversity of events and the flow of life.

The obverse features a circle symbolising 360 + 5 degrees, including also the time reference point. The year 2013 is placed on the circle at the top. The concentric lines within the circle represent 1 second, 1 minute, 1 hour, 1 day, 1 month and 1 year.

The reverse features an intricate pattern of lines which turn into circles; the diagram comprises a shiny sector resembling the form of the number 1.
