Description of obverse and reverse On the obverse and reverse there are images of the life, works and activities of Lithuanian peasants, depicted with reference to motifs of the poem METAI (The Seasons) by Kristijonas Donelaitis.   The obverse also features a stylized coat of arms of the Republic of Lithuania, Vytis, surrounded by the inscriptions LIETUVA (Lithuania), 2014 and 50 LITŲ (litas). The reverse also features the sun, representing the earth’s natural cycle change, surrounded by the inscriptions: KRISTIJONAS DONELAITIS, 300. On the edge of the coin there is the inscription: JAU SAULELĖ VĖL ATKOPDAMA BUDINO SVIETĄ (The climbing sun wakes the world again).
A brief annotation K. Donelaitis is a Lithuanian poet of great importance and value. Only the hexametric poem The Seasons (Metai) and his six fables remained. He took the side of the lowest social class, considered peasants as his brothers, compatriots and friends. They were the ones who became the heroes of the epos The Seasons. The poet preached the idea of eternal return and cyclical movement. His «little sun» returns in spring and reaches its zenith, while in autumn it rolls on, all the while dictating the work and activities of the peasants. The whole epos is marked by the sign of eternal relevance, characteristic of classic literature.
Designer Graphic design is made by Tadas Žebrauskas and sculptor model — by Giedrius Paulauskis.

Еще один прекрасный образец прибалтийского стиля, классической строгости и лаконичности.
