The large coat of arms of the Republic of Latvia, with the year 2006 inscribed below, is placed in the centre. The inscriptions LATVIJAS and REPUBLIKA, each arranged in a semicircle, are above and beneath the central motif respectively.
A pinecone above a horizontal line is featured in the upper part of the coin. The numeral 1, with the inscription LATS in a semicircle, is arranged in the lower part.
Two inscriptions LATVIJAS BANKA (Bank of Latvia), separated by rhombic dots.
When the air starts to smell of snow, fir-trees and pies with bacon stuffing and Jack Frost adorns our window panes with intricate patterns of ice, we all have expectations of something unusual to happen. The Christmas miracle may even take the shape of a coin with a pinecone, which, having scattered its seeds for the sake of a new forest, is ready to enhance the Christmas tree and seems to even resemble one slightly.
