The banknotes throughout the euro area are similar, however the reverse of the coins is chosen by each country separately. This makes the creation process of the coins more complicated, but the users of these banknotes find interest in their diversity. The folk maiden will be depicted on the national side of the Latvian one-euro and two-euro coins, whereas the 50-, 20- and 10-euro cent coins will feature the great coat of arms of Latvia and the 5-, 2- and 1-euro-cent coins the small coat of arms of Latvia. The design models are approved by the Euro Coins Subcommittee of the Economic and Financial Council (ECOFIN).
