About the project

The year 1918 was a momentous one for the three Baltic States – Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania – as it was the year all three countries freed themselves from foreign rule and founded independent states. Now, 100 years later, we have much more in common than just our history, as we are united by the European Union and the shared currency we use, the euro.

To mark the centenary of the Baltic States, Eesti Pank, Latvijas Banka and Lietuvos bankas decided to issue a €2 commemorative coin with the same design for all three countries.

Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania have each selected the two best design proposals from their country. Now the people of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania and friends of the Baltic countries around the globe are invited to choose from those six designs the one that will be minted.

You can vote for only one coin and only once.

After selecting the design, please fill in the participant’s registration form giving your full name, email address and country of residence (telephone number is optional). Your vote will only be counted if you confirm the vote by clicking the link that is then emailed to the address you indicated in the participant registration form.

At the beginning of 2018 the specially created coin dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Baltic States will be issued and presented in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania at the same time.

There will be a prize draw where 100 voters will be chosen at random to win three coins, one from each of the countries.

More detailed information about the project can be found in the Voting terms and conditions.
