Lithuanian Coins from the Republic before WW II.

The currency of Lithuania has floated with the political system, too often imposed by bordering and occupying countries. Germany imposed its will and currency, the ostmark, during WW I. The modern litas was established in 1922, after independence,

The short period of independent Lithuanian coinage described here lasted only until 1939, when Germany took over again and imposed the reichsmark replaced the litas. In 1941, Lithuania was annexed by the Soviet Union and the currency became the ruble.

The litas returned in 1993, as a result off the collapse of the Soviet Union. In 2002, the move to the euro began.

The Mint

The coins of 1925 were made in England's Royal Mint & King's Norton Metal Works.

The Lithuanian mint began operation in 1936.

Coin Values

The chart below gives ranges of possible values. The coin's condition is a major determining factor; and condition grading is subjective. These values are suggestive of order of magnitude.

It should be noted that collectible grade coins are not commodities that fluctuate widely in value. Rather value ranges hold for long periods of time (years.)

Actual prices reflect what one person is willing to offer and what another person is willing to pay. In other words, subject to negotiation! This is not an offer to buy nor an offer to sell. Just one person's opinions and guesses.
