Coin dedicated to Ukraine's fight for freedom
ObverseThe centre of the obverse of the coin features an image of the embroidered, stylised symbols of the coats of arms of the Republic of Lithuania, the Vytis, and of Ukraine, the Trident (Tryzub). An inscription LIETUVA (LITHUANIA) is located above the image, with the denomination (€10) and the mintmark of the Lithuanian Mint below. The artistic composition features Ukrainian conventional patterns as an allusion to linen, used throughout the human lifecycle, from birth to death.
ReverseThe reverse of the coin features arms symbolically embracing everything that is a state, a nation fighting for tradition, history, the present and the future, as well as a stylised outline of Ukrainian state filled with volumetric details of ethnographic ornaments in cloth – as Ukrainians are defending their land, their homeland, their homes, their loved ones, the graves of their ancestors and their history. The composition also bears the inscriptions in Lithuanian UKRAINOS KOVAI UŽ LAISVĘ and in Ukrainian УКРАЇНА БОРЕТЬСЯ ЗА СВОБОДУ (FOR UKRAINE’S FIGHT FOR FREEDOM) and the year of issue (2022).
