The Latvian Brown 2 Euro Latvia 2016

Dairy industry has always been an important branch of the Latvian economy, which makes its contribution to manufacturing of various products and supplements the income of businesses and households. The main breed of dairy cows in Latvia is the Latvian Brown. Initially, the Latvian brown cow was registered in 1911 as the Latvian Red-brown, but the Latvian Brown breed was approved in 1922. The Latvian Brown is a reddish-brown cow with darker legs and head, and a dark grey muzzle. These animals are productive, resilient, of relatively low maintenance, long life span and good reproduction rates, well-adapted to the local climate.
 
After Latvia regained independence, the 2 lats coin featured an image of the Latvian Brown, which is now introduced to the single currency flows by the 2 euro commemorative coin.
