Latvia's finest from first year of issue - 1929. The theme also fits in my Ceres & National Folk Maiden special project area in the Moneta Museum. These are common but getting one in MS 65 or better is nearly impossible - I'll keep trying...Be sure to check out the reissue in a "tamped back" finish for 2012 her in the Moneta Museum. Also, what is she doing during this beautiful profile shot? Check out the 50 Santimu piece to find out.
People gave 5-lats silver coins to their children and grandchildren as gifts; they stored and kept them "for a rainy day" as if they had some apprehension, some foreboding. When during World War II the occupational regimes replaced one another and Latvia lost its independence and national currency, this silver coin became a symbol of freedom and statehood for the nation, a comforting ray of hope for those scattered in Siberia and in exile across the globe.
