The Latvian "Coin of Digits"


Recommended Posts

Latvia issued a very interesting collector coin a couple of weeks ago - the "Coin of Digits". This is a heptagonal piece, face value 1 lats, with a symbolic but extremely low mintage of 2007.

"The Arabic numeral 0 is in the centre of the heptagon, with the year 2007 arranged above it to the left, and the inscription 1 LATS placed to the right, against a background of an Oriental pattern of curvy lines."

"The Roman numeral I is in the centre of the heptagon, with the year MMVII split and arranged on both sides of it, against a background of an ornament of straight lines forming the shapes of Roman numerals."


Images and descriptions borrowed :ninja: from the central bank's web site. More about the coin and the meaning of the various design elements is here: http://www.bank.lv/eng/main/all/lvnaud/jub...coin_of_digits/
