Symbols on Grand Duchy of Lithuania coins: the religion, the
ruler, the state

First coins of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania were minted in
the late 14th century, right after Jogaila became the king
of Poland and Lithuania began the process of
Christianisation (in 1386–1387). The Christianisation
kick-started a number of important changes in the country,
and some of them found their reflection in early Lithuanian
coins. The symbolism of the coins was dominated by the
motives of religion and authority because in addition to
being part of the economy, the coins were supposed to
deliver messages about the ruler of the country among
various groups of the society.
