Finland - Euro Coins

Euro coins, gold and silver commemorative coins of Finland.

Finland joined the eurozone in 2002, and they continued their tradition of minting collectors' coins. They do not mint too many coins per year; only 3 to 4 coins. The record was reached in 2005 with 5 coins minted.
 
Finland, like no other country in the union, has a tendency to use mainly silver in their collectors' coin issues and a very distinctive way of alternating other materials, like Gold, Nickel-Copper, Nordic Gold ... etc. They have minted more bimetal collectors' coins than gold coins. That is the main reason why the vast majority of the Finish coins have a low face value, with almost 70% of their issues having a face value of €10 or €5. As a result, the Finish gold coins have a really high value in the market because they are fairly difficult to find.

FINLAND 2EURO COMMEMORATIVE COINS
Commemorative coins minted in Finland/topics: 
 
FIFTH ENLARGMENT of the European Union in 2004 1 million coins FDI June 2004
Description: The coin's design resembles a stylised pillar from which ten sprouts grow upwards. This is a metaphorical theme: The ten sprouts represent the growth of the European Union (i.e., the 2004 enlargement which added ten new member states), while the pillar represents the foundation for the growth. Near the bottom of the coin,
below the pillar, the word EU is written, and together with the left side of the pillar, representing the Greek small letter "ρ" (rho), it reads "euro". The twelve stars of the European Union adorn the outer ring together with the year mark, which is at the top of the ring.
60th Anniversary of the Establishment of the United Nations and 50th Anniversary of Finland's UN Membership 2 million coins 25 October 2005
Description: The centre of the coin contains part of a jigsaw puzzle showing a dove of peace. On the bottom of the centre part, the inscription FINLAND – UN and the year mark is displayed; the artist's initial (K) appears above the last digit of the year mark, while the mint mark (M) is between the inscription and the dove. The twelve stars of the European Union adorn the outer ring
100st Centenary of the Introduction of Universal and Equal Suffrage 2.5 million coins 4 October 2006
Description: The coin shows two stylised faces in the centre part, one male and the other female; they are separated by a thin curved line. Two capital M's appear to the right of each face, one of them the mint mark and the other one the artist's initial. On the right side, the date of the introduction of universal and equal suffrage in Finland (1. 10. 1906) is inscribed, while the left side of the coin contains the year mark and the country abbreviation (20 FI 06). The twelve stars of the European Union surround the design on the outer ring of the coin.
 
An interesting characteristic of this coin is that the text "150 years of Demilitarisation of Åland Islands" is written on the obverse of the coin in Swedish, and on the edge of the coin in Finnish.

Independent Finland 90 years
 90th Anniversary of Finland's Declaration of Independence
Designer: Reijo Paavilainen Mint: -
Value: €5 Alloy:
On 15 November 1917, the Bolsheviks in Russia declared a general right of self-determination, including the right of complete secession, "for the People of Russia". On the same day the Finnish Parliament issued the Finland's Declaration of Independence, a declaration by which it assumed all powers of sovereignty in Finland. On 6 December 1917, the Parliament adopted the Declaration, which is why this day is the national holiday Finland Independence Day. The independence of Finland was recognized by the Soviet government on 18 December 1918 and approved on December 22 of the same year.
This issue celebrates the 90th anniversary of independence in Finland. The reverse shows petroglyph aesthetics, while the obverse has a nine-oar boat with rowers as a symbol of a true Finnish trait: collaboration. You can also distinguish signs of music and Finnish zitherin strings in the coin's design.
