Lithuania 2 Euro 2016 Baltic Culture
|Category||Special euro coins|
The theme of the 2016 special 2 Euro coin of Lithuania is Baltic culture. On the coin is an amulet that is disc-shaped and the colour of Amber. Amber is a typical product found on the Baltic Sea coasts including, of course, in Lithuania. In the Neolithic Period, the new Stone Age, which began about 13,000 years ago, the first jewellery was made. The wheel was also invented at that time. The Amber-coloured Disc Amulet, also from this time, is depicted on this special Lithuanian 2 Euro coin. The idea behind this is that amber has connected the Baltic world with the rest of Europe. At the top of the coin, is the country name Lietuva (Lithuania) along with the year 2016. Around the edge of the coin æLAISVE * VIENYBE * GEROVEÆ (Freedom - Unity - Well-being) is printed.
