It was on 26 January 1921 when Latvian diplomats had succeeded in accomplishing a momentous task – the world's great powers recognized Latvia de iure. Although Latvia declared its independence on 18 November 1918, only after a confused period of fighting, the new nation was recognized in 1920.
The design depicts an artistic inscription "100 Latvija de iure 2021" thus also featuring the country name (LATVIJA) as well as the year of issue (2021).
The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.
