In 1992, the production of coins of 20 centimes ordered a mint of Germany. Like all "yellow" trifle alloy of copper, Nickel and zinc. But the Germans made a mistake: the part of the party, they were minted from steel billets intended for their 10 pfennings. The Bank of Latvia, the marriage did not notice at first, and 20 centimes went into circulation. And only in August 1993, when the people found a discrepancy (GURT – white, and most importantly, the coin is magnetic), President of BL Einar repše has published the order "for official use only": the coin is considered legal rare variation of the usual 20 centimes, and to accept without restrictions.
