Resolved Question: Silver coin from Latvia?
My husband found a coin whilst working in some factory, and brought it home.
Turns out its latvian but after doing some research I still don't know whether it's a commemorative coin or whether it's part of their currency and how old it is.
On one side embossed in the silver coin is the latvian coat of arms and underneath "Dievs, sveti Latviju". On the reverse it looks like a rising sun with a banner and three stars beneath it then on the left hand side 18.11 then on the right hand side 1918 (Referring to the Latvian Independence day I pressume)
It probably isnt worth anything I'd just like to know a little about it, any info will be appreciated (:
