Coins of the Lithuanian litas
Source: en.wikipedia.org

These coins are made from aluminium. The coins' edge is plain. These coins are the first permanent coins released after the restoration of independence in 1990. Unlike other coins they bear the same date - 1991 - no matter the year of actual production. The design has not changed even though they bear an old version of the Coat of Arms (the horse's tail looks down instead of up, the knight is leaning forward, and other details).
