Lithuania 2 Euro 2016 Baltic Culture Coloured
|Metal||Koper - Koper-Nikkel|
|Category||Coloured 2 euro coins|
The theme of the special 2016 Lithuanian 2 Euro coin is Baltic culture. On the coin there is an amber coloured amulet which has the shape of a disc. Amber is a product found on the coasts of the Baltic countries, including 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. From this time the amber-coloured æDisc AmuletÆ is depicted on this special 2 Euro coin from Lithuania. The idea behind this is that amber has connected the Baltic world with the rest of Europe.
