Lithuania 2 Euro Coins (Lietuva)

One of the most interesting aspects of Numismatics is to discover particular, special and unique coins. In this article, for example, we will analyse the Commemorative Lithuania 2 Euro Coins (Lietuva).

These are “special” coins minted over the years to commemorate historical events or important people in this country. The interesting thing to know about these coins is that the National side of some of these commemorative coins features unique representations.

So what we are going to do is to analyse each individual coin in order to understand why it was minted, what it represents and what its characteristics are! The table with the values and the yearly print runs will follow later.
