You must have seen this cow on Latvian (pre-euro) 2 Lats coin. :) Next year, Latvia plans to issue a commemorative 2 coin with the same design. Cow is also a national animal of Latvia.

That ramrod straight back of the cow reminds me of the Guernsey threepence of the fifties/10 new pence f the sixties. I guess there are a limited ways to look at a cow.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

That is exactly what it reminds me of too.
I do like the design.

Is there anything special about the BU set (face value: 5.88, Issue Price: 25) that has been issued? I just saw a dealer asking 130+ for it... :o

OK, the word is that Latvia will not be issuing any of the regular Latvian euro coins (1c-2) dated 2016 for circulation. So the date collectors have to get the BU set with a mintage of 5000 only, and hence the high price... ::)
