This coin is a dedication to the Latvian riflemen, heroes of the Christmas Battles, and their eternal contribution to the future.

The Christmas Battles raged from 5 to 11 January 1917 (from 23 to 29 December 1916, old style) along a front line of 30 km stretching from Tīreļpurvs to Olaine. Latvian national military units, joined together in one division under major general Augusts Ernests Misiņš (1863–1940, later the first general of the Latvian army), were involved in theses battles for the first time.

The obverse of the coin features a group of Latvian riflemen and an image of stylised sun taken from the Latvian riflemen battalion's soldier badge, with red-painted central field, eight broken sunbeams, and a slantwise-situated sword. The reverse features a snowflake, a point of bullet impact, and the inscription "Christmas Battles".
