The coin depicts the symbols of the love of the Baltic culture, used by our ancestors from ancient times and still recognised today. It originates from nature, family, emotions and feelings, which in the culture of ancestors had specific meanings of cosiness and respect. Do you still recognise the meanings of the symbols depicted on the Love coin today? Let’s try to reveal their meanings together.
The packaging of the coin is handmade from natural linen, produced in the social workshop at the Valakupiai Rehabilitation Centre in Lithuania. The packaging is designed to reinforce the idea of love and humanity for each other. By purchasing products made by people with mental and/or psychosocial disabilities, you are also contributing to social change and better integration into society.
