The hedgehog inhabits groves, bushes, edges of forests and often dwells in parks and gardens close to people. The white-chested hedgehog is found all over Latvia, whereas the brown-chested one is much more rare and is found mostly in Northern Vidzeme. The hedgehog can live up to five years and spends half of its life hibernating in a den of fallen leaves, moss, and dry grass. After regaining the weight that has been lost during hibernation, in May the hedgehog is busy procreating and demonstrating its quick temper.

The large coat of arms of the Republic of Latvia is placed in the center of the obverse, surrounded by the year date and the inscriptions LATVIJAS and REPUBLIKA.
