Lithuania 50-CENTU (KM90) 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.

This bronze coin was issued in 1991 only. It features the classic portrait with the horse's tail down, and the knight leaning forward, as in a charge.

This coin was issued one year only.
