Latvians Lining Up to Buy Beer Coins

Latvia's Beer Coin

While some countries' coins commemorate political figures and historical buildings, Latvia prefers to imprint theirs with mushrooms, snowmen, and frogs. However, a new coin issued last month has the Baltic country's Health Ministry pretty mad.

The silver one Lat coin contains a large, frothy beer stein on the back side, dedicated to the beverage binging bash known as the midsummer solstice festival.
