On Tuesday, 15 June, Latvijas Banka is issuing a silver collector coin "YES or YES" dedicated to marriage. Symbolically, the authors of the coin design are Krista and Reinis Dzudzilo, a married creative tandem. This is their début in coin art.
The authors' concept of the coin is as follows: in marriage traditions, two people are asked a question, expecting an affirmative answer. This is a coin of an absolute affirmative, with its both sides happily saying "YES". The obverse and the reverse become one. They denote one belief, one answer, one being consisting of two individuals. Both sides of the coin are like each other's reflection, and there is no way knowing which was the first.
The golden answers are encircled by the edge of the coin, a golden circle – an ideal shape which is always at its beginning and on an eternal journey that never ends, just like love.
When flipping a coin, the choice between two alternatives is made depending on whether the coin lands heads or tails side up. This coin changes the rules of the game, as there is no room for failure. You just have to ask the right question.
This coin will be an excellent gift for the couples getting married this summer and saying "YES" to each other on this occasion. The gold plated edge of the coin with the inscription 2021 encircles the affirmative answer of both sides like a ring.
