Lithuania: 2018 Numismatic Program
« on: December 02, 2017, 01:01:07 PM »
Next year the three Baltic countries of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania will celebrate the 100th anniversary of their independence. Apart from a joint 2 commem, each country will issue collector coins - and Lithuania will come up with a "four in one" piece.

The theme is the "100th Anniversary of the Restoration of Lithuania's Independence". But each part of the, errm, combo has a different focus and a different face value:

* Outer Ring: Legal System (20 silver)
* Middle Ring: Armed Forces & Militarised Organisations (10 silver)
* Inner Ring: Diplomacy (5 silver)
* Center/Pill: The Signatories (50 gold)

On each of the four pages, you can move the vertical divider to the left and right. This way you can view both sides of the designs. Mintage will be 4,000 (proof only). Don't know yet how much these will be, but the coin(s) will come out in the first quarter of 2018.

Caution. The low-hanging fruits are still there maybe for a reason.

Don't quite think so - the central coin will be gold, and the other three parts or coins will be silver rings. I suppose the four pieces can be taken apart, but whether you would want to do that with a proof issue ... ;)

Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Republic of Lit : Lithuania mints a silver coin dedicated to the centenary of its diplomatic service

02/13/2018 | 09:11am EST

On 13 February, a presentation of coins issued by the Bank of Lithuania on the occasion of the centenary of the restoration of the state of Lithuania took place at the House of Signatories in Vilnius. One coin is dedicated to Lithuania's diplomatic service.

'It is symbolic that Lithuania's diplomatic service and the state of Lithuania are both celebrating their 100th anniversary this year. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania was the first government institution of the restored state of Lithuania and the diplomatic service has operated for a hundred years uninterruptedly. During the period of occupation, we had our own representatives, legations, even premises in Washington, D.C., and London,' said the Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania Albinas Zananavičius, when presenting the coin.

On 13 February, the Bank of Lithuania issued a new series of coins - the gold coin is dedicated to signatories, while three silver coins are dedicated, respectively, to the country's diplomatic service, military and paramilitary force, and the judicial system.
