Fragments of the graphic design of a set of stationery paper (1968; the horse motif) created by Uldis Razums and a graphic motif from the cover of the record "Džeza festivāls 68" (Jazz Festival 68; 1968) created by Gunārs Kirke have been featured with frosting of three different levels of intensity and gold plated details of the motifs. The inscription LATVIJA is placed vertically on top left of the obverse, while the year 2020 is inscribed on top right.

A fragment of the decor of the coffee set "Saulīte" (the Sun; 1964–1970) designed by Zina Ulste and a fragment of the blueprint of the residential building in Brīvības iela 313, Riga, developed by Marta Zigrīda Staņa, Imants Jākobsons and Harolds Kanders have been featured with frosting of two different levels of intensity and gold plated details of the motifs. The inscription 5 euro is placed vertically in two rows along the right edge of the reverse from the centre upwards. The sixties. It is like a password letting us start a conversation about a critically important decade in the Western cultures of the 20th century, i.e. the time setting the tone for what we call a modern lifestyle. Each of us has some association, be it The Beatles music or the man in space, freedom of hippies or miniskirts, but above all – the promising feeling that the future will bring increasing intensity of life and well-being.
