Cross crafting is the term used to describe the art of creating wooden crosses and shrines for various spiritual purposes in the community. These crosses can be quite ornate in their design and the Lithuanian community takes great pride in their construction. Both the Obverse and Reverse of this silver coin feature a number of examples of cross crafting around the coin. In the center of the Reverse is the inscription for Cross Crafting And Symbolism as well as "UNESCO", which stands for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. In the center of the Obverse is "The Chaser" or "Vytis", the Knight in armor on horseback taken from the Lithuanian coat of arms.
