This beautiful and iconic coin of Latvia is a modern restrike of the famous 5 Lati of 1929-32. The central theme is of a "Folk-Maid" with the overtones of Ceres as a goddess of agriculture, particularly of the staple crop of wheat. This coin celebrates the 90th Year of the Bank of Latvia. Of particular note is the minting method which is described as 'tamped back', a new term that I'm unfamiliar with but the method seems to follow many modern mint products that bear evidence of digitization that expresses itself as matte finish.
The inscriptions DIEVS, SVĒTĪ and LATVIJU, separated by three hexagonal stars.
