This collector coin has been issued within the international coin program Hansa Cities and is dedicated to Limbazi, one of the eight Hanseatic cities of Latvia.

The year 1223, when Bishop Albert started building a castle in the Metsepole province, was also the founding year of Limbazi. As one of the residences of the Arcbishop of Riga, Limbaži was awarded town status in 1385, later becoming a member of the Hanseatic League. Beginning with the middle of the 16th century, the city had to withstand a number of wars and fires, and at the end of the 19th century trade and crafts began to flourish there. Limbazi is a member of the New Hanseatic League. The historic centre of the city with its radial layout is a monument of urban planning and is considered part of the national heritage.
