The Bank of Latvia has issued a new silver collector coin dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the Baltic Way. Also known as the Baltic Chain or Chain of Freedom, this was a peaceful demonstration that occurred on August 23, 1989 with approximately two million people joining hands to form a human chain spanning more than 600 kilometers across the three Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. The demonstration drew global attention to the united desire of the Baltic nations to regain freedom and renew independence.

The symbolic obverse design depicts a single braid against an open field with the colors of the national flags of the three Baltic nations interwoven. The inscription “5 euro” appears at right with the additional inscriptions “BALTIJAS CEĻŠ 1989″ (Baltic Way 1989) and the date “2014″. The reverse design shows the image of a tree trunk with exposed roots. Inscriptions appear in a semi-circle ATMOSTAS BALTIJA (Awakening Baltics) on the left and LIETUVA LATVIJA EESTI (Lithuania Latvia Estonia) on the right. The edge includes the inscriptions LATVIJAS BANKA and LATVIJAS REPUBLIKA, separated by rhombic dots.
