Before Latvia became independent again in 1990 it was under Soviet authority for quite some time and, before that it issued its own coins. The coin on offer is the 1 Lati only issued in 1923 and 1924. But, as the 1923 is rare, all of our coins are dated 1924. It is about the size of an old Shilling and is struck in 835 Silver and in Very Fine condition. You have the coat of arms of Latvia supported by a lion and a griffin and the title ‘Latvijas Republika’. The reverse has the value and date within a wreath. Today this coin is now over 92 years old and it was struck in .835 Silver which is quite high quality.
