The inscription "5 euro" is placed at the top right, and the inscription LATVIJA, with the yeardate 2015 beneath it, are situated at the bottom left. Reverse: Adorned with red flowers, the upside-down image of sitting Aspazija is featured on the left side of the reverse. The image of sitting Rainis appears on the right. The facsimile of Rainis' and Aspazija's signatures appear next to their images.
A brief annotation Rainis (1865–1929) was a Latvian poet, playwright, translator, journalist, politician with a degree in law from the University of St. Petersburg. Aspazija (1865–1943) was a poet, playwright, translator and public figure. Different in their poetic approach (Rainis – ideas; Aspazija – feelings), they were the most prominent couple in Latvian literature and culture. Rainis seemed to hammer his poetry and drama out of iron and steel, whereas Aspazija formed them out of pliant and gentle beeswax. As the wax melts, it spreads a sweet fragrance and the brilliance of sunrays, whereas the iron and steel serve to toughen the nation. This combination helped to bring about the miracle of Latvia's independence. The shape of the coin dedicated to the anniversary of Rainis and Aspazija is perfect to give new life to the images and writings of the classics.
