|Category||Special 2 euro coins|
We have available from stock the 2015 Latvian 2 Euro ôZwarte Ooievaarö (Black Stork). In 2015 the Latvian Association for Ornithology is exactly 30 years old. To celebrate this Latvia has issued a special 2 Euro coin with the theme of the Black Stork. The Black Stork is not as famous as the White Stork and is a protected species. A Black Stork, (Ciconia Nigra) unlike the White Stork, finds its food more in woods and marshy areas. From the middle of April to the end of August the noise of the Storks is heard everywhere in Latvia. Latvia is not called the "Stork's Land" for nothing as no less than 5% of the Stork's total live in Latvia during summer. In winter the Storks migrate to Africa. On this special 2 Euro coin a Stork is portrayed standing on his nest. Below this are the country name Latvija (Latvia) and the year 2015. In the outer circle of the coin are the 12 stars of Europe. Around the edge of the coin is the text æDIEVS SVETI LATVIJUÆ (God bless Latvia). The quality of the coin is UNC, and the issue of this coin is 1,000,000 copies.
