Here's the "Innovative" themed coin, commemorating "Honey". A design competition was held to finalize the design and industrial designer Artūrs Analts has been awarded the first prize. Overall, 42 designs were submitted.

Issue date is not fixed yet. Bank of Latvia says it will discuss with the winner regarding how to implement his idea on the coin. ;)

Here't the third coin from the "Fairy Tales" series. The subject this time is 'The Old man's Mitten'.

The coin is now a part of my collection, thanks to a very good friend from Germany. :) With this coin, I now have all the three coins from 'Fairy Tales' series. Interestingly, the first coin from the series (five cats) has become quite expensive, as it was sold out at the central bank soon after the issue. Second and third coins are relatively easy to find (and affordable too!)
