The "Fairy Tale Coin I. Five Cats" is the first collector coin in a special series of coins dedicated to the most dearly loved and significant Latvian fairy tales. The Latvian fairy tale about the five cats is one of those which parents tend to read to their children as a bedtime story and which they are always asked to read again.
The graphic design of the coin has been created by Anita Paegle, while the author of the plaster model is Jānis Strupulis.
The obverse of the coin features a bed with five sleeping cats. The bed-foot is decorated with an image and the inscription 2015. The names of five cats – Muris, Ņuris, Incis, Mincis and Puncis – are arranged in a semi-circle on the right.
A cat holding a porridge bowl is placed in the centre. Cats with smaller bowls and spoons are featured on either side of the central motif. The words KAĶI (CATS) and EURO, with the inscription of the coin's value and cats' number "5" in between them, are placed at the top.
KAĶI 5 EURO
The inscriptions LATVIJAS BANKA and LATVIJAS REPUBLIKA (Republic of Latvia), separated by rhombic dots.
LATVIJAS BANKA ♦ LATVIJAS REPUBLIKA ♦
