Coin Design


Coin design

The proposed design of the Lithuanian euro coins share a similar national side for all denominations, featuring the Vytis symbol and the name of the country, "Lietuva".[54] The design was announced on 11 November 2004 following a public opinion poll conducted by the Bank of Lithuania.[54] It was created by the sculptor Antanas ┼Żukauskas.[55] The only difference between the coins is that the one and two euro coins have vertical lines on the outer circle, the fifty, twenty and ten cent coins have horizontal lines on the outer circle, and the five, two and one cent coins have no lines on the outer circle.[54] In January 2014 it was announced that all coins will have "2015" printed on them to display the year of Lithuania's euro adoption. The Lithuanian Mint was chosen to mint the coins.[54][55]
