The Garden of Destiny on New Latvian Collector Coin
« on: June 18, 2018, 01:08:15 PM »
On June 21, Bank of Latvia will issue a silver collector €5 coin commemorating The Garden of Destiny.

From Bank's information brochure: 

The Garden of Destiny is rising on an island in the Daugava River near Koknese, nurtured as the nation's present to Latvia on its centenary. The idea of the Garden of Destiny came as a response to a heartfelt desire of the people to create a national memorial site in honour of those 600 thousand people of Latvia who had suffered and perished during totalitarian regimes of the 20th century. Being a memorial place, the Garden of Destiny is also a source for inspiration and energy.

Mintage: 3000, Issue Price: €50.
