The Bank of Lithuania has released a new euro coin which is a tribute to the Lithuanian language. While some of the one million new coins will be reserved for collectors, most will be put into circulation, according to Miglė Mockutė-Zaleckienė, a representative of the Bank of Lithuania.

Mockutė-Zaleckienė told Žinių Radijas: “One of the sides of the coin is like all the other two-euro coins. On the national side, we have one of the most beautiful, meaningful and probably one of the most often used words, ačiū (thank you).”

Of the one million coins, 10,000 have been specially minted and packaged for numismatists (coin collectors).
