Lithuania 2-LITAI (KM186) Horse

The image of Vytis -- the White Knight -- on horseback was first used in 1366 on the seal of the Grand Duke of Lithuania. From there it was handed down through centuries, making its way onto heraldic shields and state emblems.

In 2012 Lithuania issued a series of circulating commemorative coins celebrating Lithuania's resort towns on the reverse. This example -- Palanga -- is in the Zoo to show the changed obverse design from the original 2-litai bimetallic (KM112).
