Sports coins

The Finnish people love sports. After great victories, the whole nation celebrates as one and we share the burden of defeats. You can now demonstrate your love for sports by purchasing a collector coin. Authorised by the Ministry of Finance, Mint of Finland plans to release a total of nine collector coins paying tribute to different sports in 2015–2016. The series will celebrate the sports most loved by the Finns.

The Sports Coins series is dedicated to the sports Finnish people love. Each sport is heavy with shared memories, stories and atmosphere. Winners and losers, victories won and defeats suffered by a hair's breadth, and crushing routs. One hundredths of a second, centimetres, metres, periods and matches won and lost. Tears of joy and disappointment.
