The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania announced in a tweet this week that the Bank of Lithuania will issue a 10-euro silver collectors’ coin to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the Vilna Gaon.
In the tweet, the MFA says, “If you will it, you too can be a genius.” The country’s parliament has declared 2020 as the Year of the Vilna Gaon and Lithuanian Jewish History.
