Please be informed that the coin will be available for purchase only on the website e-monetas.lv from 12.00 (noon) on 20 January. The new commemorative coin will be available for purchase only in gift packaging and in souvenir sets.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the new numismatic products will not be available at the Cashier's Offices of Latvijas Banka. For the time being, the coins purchased on the website e-monetas.lv will be deliveredby post only.
The new 2 euro commemorative coins, both individual coins and coins in rolls, will be temporarily unavailable for circulation. Once the situation stabilises, Latvijas Banka will put into circulation a total of 400 000 coins, and the public will be notified thereof in a timely manner.
The author of the graphic design of the national side of the new commemorative coin is artist Zane Ernštreite. The author of the common side of the coin is artist Luc Luycx, and the material and size of the coin are the same as those of other 2 euro circulation coins.
The price of the 2 euro coin in Brilliant Uncirculated quality available in gift packaging is 7.90 euro, and the purchase limit for one buyer is 5 pieces (total mintage: 5000 pieces), while the price of the circulation coin set is 25.00 euro, and the purchase limit for one buyer – 5 sets (total mintage: 7000 sets).
The national side of the commemorative coin bears the inscription "100 LATVIJA DE IURE" as well as the year of issue (2021). At the same time, the inscription "Latvija" also indicates the country of issue. The edge of the coin, like all other 2 euro circulation coins of the Republic of Latvia, features the inscription "DIEVS * SVĒTĪ * LATVIJU *" (God bless Latvia). The new 2 euro coin has been minted by Staatliche Münze Baden-Württemberg (Germany).
The souvenir set "Latvia de iure 100" contains the euro circulation coins issued in 2021 whose nominal value ranges between 1 cent and 2 euro, including the new 2 euro commemorative coin.
"Latvia de iure 100" will be the only 2 euro commemorative coin issued by Latvijas Banka this year. Each year, every euro area country is entitled to issue two 2 euro commemorative coins of special design as well as one more commemorative coin within a joint programme of several euro area countries provided that such a programme is organised.
Latvijas Banka continues the tradition of minting circulation coins of special design in Latvia. Euro commemorative coins are legal tender in the Republic of Latvia and other euro area countries.
Konnte heute jemand den 2er + KMS erfolgreich bestellen? Meine Bestellung mit je 5 Stk. klappte prima, wurde jedoch 2h später storniert ... habe gerade angefragt, warum, bisher leider noch keine Antwort.
