The coin replicating a bubble fibula is the last one in the series of euro gold collector coins dedicated to Latvia’s centenary.
A set of all three gold coins: “Gold Brooches. The Disc Fibula”, “Gold Brooches. The Horseshoe Fibula”, and “Gold Brooches. The Bubble Fibula” will also be available for purchase as of 8 November.
For several centuries bubble fibulae were characteristic for the territory of the present-day Latvia: the luxurious brooches worn by women represented not just ordinary jewellery but also significant value of that time. They became an integral part of the Latvian national costumes. Latvijas Banka’s gold collector coin dedicated to bubble fibula will also be special among the gifts dedicated to Latvia on its centenary: it will be as a significant and valuable reminder of this historical milestone in gold as a token of our cultural and historical experience.
The author of the graphic design of the collector coin “Gold Brooches. The Bubble Fibula” is Ingūna Elere, and the plaster model was created by Jānis Strupulis. Ingūna Elere is the author of all three coins of the gold brooches series.
