Finland, 2 euro commemorative coin, Aland Autonomy, 2021. Aland has been following its own path and been building its own culture for almost 100 years now. Aland is an autonomous, demilitarised and Swedish-speaking part of Finland. The Finnish Parliament approved the Act on Aland autonomy in spring 1920, but the final solution was reached through arbitration by the League of Nations in 1921. Finland retained sovereignty over Aland, but Aland got autonomy and guarantees for the Swedish language and the local culture and usages. The averse of the coin depicts an archipelagic scenery: a shipping lane with sea marks, the bow of a boat, and a hand holding a compass.
