The official currency of Latvia is the euro with 1 euro being divided into 100 cents.

Prior to the introduction of the euro, Latvia’s currency was Latvian lats. Lats were used in Latvia between 1922 and 2014.

There was only a two-week transition period in which lats and euros were both in circulation within Latvia.

The most commonly used bills for the euro are the 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 notes.
