Lithuanian euro coins


Lithuanian euro coins

Lithuanian euro coins share a similar national side for all eight coins, and are expected to be issued from 2010 on. The difference between the coins are that 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. The design featuring the Vytis symbol and the word Lithuania was announced November 11 2004, and was created by the sculptor Antanas Žukauskas.
