The Garden of Destiny rises on an island in the Daugava River near Koknese. This picturesque area is a crossroads of cultural and historical diversity of Zemgale, Sēlija and Vidzeme where threads and vibes of Latvia's history and mythology intersect. The island is marked by a section of the ancient Riga–Moscow road and scarred by the dugouts of World War I. The remains of the medieval Koknese Castle, once built by the German knights, loom over the river.

The idea of the Garden of Destiny came as a response to a heartfelt desire of the people to create a national memorial site in honour of those 600 thousand people of Latvia who suffered and perished during totalitarian regimes of the 20th century. On 7 June 2005, a group of initiators assembled to establish a foundation. The Koknese Foundation decided to create a memorial site symbolizing our nation's grief for the victims, commemorating their lives and resilience, but also inspiring us for the future.

The obverse features the image of amphitheatre of the Garden of Destiny enclosed by Daugava waters in blue and green, and a metal relief. The reverse reflects human faces in silver.
