There were 17,000,000 coins of 5 litai denomination in Lithuanian circulation on December 31, 2013. In 2014 they were being withdrawn gradually from circulation.
interesting facts:
The winning design of new Lithuanian coins 10, 20 and 50 centų (centas) as well as 1, 2 and 5 litai (litas) proposed by Antanas Žukauskas contains clear concave and convex elements, which allow distinguishing between the types of coins even by sight-impaired. Usage of bimetal technology for the coins of higher face values 2 and 5 litas not only improved fast type recognition, but also limited forgery activities.
