Description of obverse and reverse Obverse: representatives of various strata of society (Catholic priests, riflemen, teachers and public figures) are featured – participants of the Latgale Congress of Latvians, carrying a red-white-red poster calling for the unification of Latvia. The inscriptions "5 euro" and "1917–2017" are placed on the top left and right respectively.

Reverse: women with children standing at the crucifix during the May singing (the May outdoor singing as a folk tradition characteristic of Latgale and has been included in the Latvian Cultural Canon) are featured; the inscription "Latgola" is placed at the bottom.
A brief annotation The Latgale Congress of Latvians took place on 9–10 May 1917 (26–27 April, old style) in Rēzekne. The basic question to be decided by the Congress was: should Latgale unite with Kurzeme and Vidzeme or try to establish its own autonomy? The Latgalians made their fundamental choice to unite with their fellow Latvians in Kurzeme and Vidzeme, and the budding Latvian state was formed, according to the administrative division of the time, of Vidzeme, Kurzeme and Latgale, cultural and historical regions represented today by the three stars in the coat of arms of the Republic of Latvia. The Latvian anthem "God, bless Latvia!" was sung publicly at the Latgale Congress for the first time.

Монета средняя. Интересна тема. Исторических событий. Исполнение немного подкачало и сюжет самой монеты.

Да, описание скудное. Задумка художника не ясна. Распятие... Столик с цветами... Почему они в композиции?

Задумку автора не совсем понял, но реализация порадовала!
