Description of obverse and reverse The obverse featured a stylized coat of arms of Lithuania, Vytis, surrounded by the inscriptions LIETUVA (Lithuania), 25 LITAI (litas) and 2014. On the reverse there is a composition of geographical images of the Baltic states with an artistic depiction of the road connecting them and the inscriptions BALTIJOS KELIAS (Baltic way) and 25 on the left. The edge of the coin is rimmed.
A brief annotation The Baltic Way was a human chain of linked hands stretching from Vilnius to Tallinn through Riga, made up of almost 2 million people from three small nations — Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. With the 50th anniversary of the 1939 treaty between the USSR and Germany, the so-called Molotov-Ribentropp secret protocols, which established spheres of influence and created the basis for the occupation and annexation of the Baltic States in the summer of 1940 by the USSR, the Baltic Republics fostered the idea to organise a campaign of such a scale so as to not remain silent on that date or pretend that the protocols were only relevant to a few groups in the Baltic Republic societies. This was a triumph of democratic self-determination. Given the historical importance and uniqueness of the event, the Baltic Way is included in the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.
