Latvia Euro Coins

1 Euro = ? Latvian lats

Latvian euro coins feature four separate designs. The design of the national side was made public in July 2006 on the home page of the Bank of Latvia. The designs featured will be the Freedom Monument on the 2 euro coin, the Latvian maiden (which featured on the 5 lats coin prior to World War II) on the 1 euro coin, the greater Coat of arms of Latvia on the 10, 20 and 50 cent coins, and the lesser Coat of arms of Latvia on the 1, 2 and 5 cent coins.

Latvia has been a member of the European Union since 1 May 2004, and is a member of the Economic and Monetary Union of the European Union but has not completed the third stage of the EMU and therefore still uses its own currency, the Latvian lats.

Latvia had originally planned to adopt the euro as its official currency on 1 January 2008. It is now expected that Latvia will introduce the euro in 2012 at the earliest, although the head of the Bank of Latvia has suggested that 2013 may be a more realistic date.
