Latvia – Legation Series
An almost flawless exile edition celebrating the 70th anniversary of Latvian independence, published when the country was still part of the Soviet Union.
The Latvian Legation in Washington DC served as the official diplomatic representative of the Latvian Republic after it was occupied by the Soviet Union in 1940. It functioned as Latvia’s government-in-exile and was recognized by the United States, Canada, Great Britain, and many other countries until Latvia regained its independence in 1991. After regaining independence, the legation became the official Latvian embassy in the United States. In the late 1980s, the legation issued a limited number of coins. The first issue from 1988 commemorated the 70th anniversary of Latvian independence. The front side showed the Latvian coat of arms and the back side the Latvian Freedom Monument, which has stood in Riga, the country’s capital, since 1935. The monument was the symbol of the Latvian struggle for freedom. The coins were issued in bronze, silver and gold in very small mintage at that time (source: chiefacoins.com).
This edition has been certified by the NGC and rated PF68 Ultra Cameo very high – certificate check. This coin is a so-called top pop, which means that as of today there is no coin that has ever been graded better at the NGC, moreover, there is also only one other certified coin of this issue at the NGC (also at the PCGS there was no coin that was graded better or equivalent to date)!
