This issue is dedicated to The White Book by Jānis Jaunsudrabiņš. The coin features a unique polygonal shape created by the shape of a book slightly offset against a square background.

The first part of The White Book was published in 1914 with a second part following in 1921. It is a fictional memoir of the writer’s childhood, which provides a panorama of Latvian rural life at the close of the 19th century. The work is supplemented with illustrations by the author.

The obverse features an image of The White Book adorned with floating clouds. The words “LATVIJAS REPUBLIKA” appear running down the side of the book with the “2014″ date aligned with the clouds. The square background includes the contours of a birch tree enclosed homestead, an illustration from the book. The denomination “5 euro” appears below. The reverse includes an image of the book’s cover with its title in Latvian “Baltā grāmata” and the date “1914″. The square background features the image of a small boy with the sun shining on him, another illustration from the book. A facsimile signature of the author appears at the base.
