Introduction

The Bank of Latvia has issued a gold 100 lats coin made of pure gold, its fineness being 999. This is the first gold circulation coin in the history of the independent Republic of Latvia. The 100 lats coin was struck by the Finnish mint "Rahapaja Oy" as Latvia celebrated its 80th anniversary.

Twofold value of the coin

This is a coin of the Bank of Latvia with a face value of 100 lats and it means that you will always be able to receive goods or services for such an amount of money. However, the value of the coin’s gold content, by 1998 gold prices, also approached 100 lats. For many centuries gold has been recognised worldwide as a measurement of value. Many people still prefer to accumulate their savings in gold. Should you decide to keep a gold 100 lats coin, you would have in your possession both a 100 lats coin and a certain amount of gold as a precious metal (16.2 g). The global gold price can either increase or decrease. In case it rises at the precious metals market, the value of the coin’s gold content can exceed 100 lats. Consequently, this coin has a value that will not be lost even during a global shock.

Why Buy

Uniqueness of the coin
In the world gold coins are most often struck of gold with fineness of 900, while the standard 9162/3 is also widespread. The new 100 lats coin is made of pure gold, its fineness being 999, which means that gold admixtures are less than one thousandth. These admixtures have not been alloyed, but have remained in the gold during its refining.

History

Why the denomination of 100 lats
The precious metal content of the coin should be as close to its face value as possible. 100 lats is the most appropriate denomination for this coin as 16 grams of gold has the approximate worth of 100 lats and is an appropriate weight for a coin. The size and weight of the coin, while convenient for use, make it stand out in the holder’s hand or wallet.
