World War I brought fundamental changes to the political map of Europe. Several new states were established, including the Republic of Latvia which was proclaimed in Riga on November 18, 1918. This date is embedded in the nation’s historical consciousness as Latvia’s birthday.

However, the War of Independence continued in Latvia. In 1920, the Latvian Government gained full control over the entire territory of Latvia. From then on, intensive diplomatic efforts to attain Latvia’s international de iure recognition were launched.

On January 26, 1921, the Supreme Council of Allied Powers notified the Latvian delegation that Latvia had received the international de iure recognition. This granted Latvia the status of a subject of international law and opened the door for Latvia to enter the League of Nations.

Latvians have always remained united by their sense of nationhood, love for their homeland, and the national anthem “God Bless Latvia!”, and during the years of the Soviet and Nazi occupation the legal continuity of the Latvian State was preserved by Latvia’s diplomats in the Western countries. The restoration of Latvia’s independence and further strengthening of Latvia’s statehood is an achievement confirming that Latvia’s de iure recognition is irrevocable.

The coin's obverse is identical to that of ordinary €2 circulation coins.
