Coins for independency

In 2017, Finland will celebrate the centennial of its independence. This one-hundred-year-old has lived through love, loss and triumph, standing united. For one hundred years, the Finnish people have been building the independent nation that we call our own. 

During this anniversary, we will remember the past but look to the future. Everything we do defines the Finland we wish to live in for the next 100 years. 

The silver coin with a nominal value of EUR 10 is designed by 15-year-old Saara Peltomäki from Jyväskylä (obverse) and 16-year-old Jennifer Tuomisto from Turku (reverse). The collector coin's design was selected by a contest organised for comprehensive school pupils. 

The obverse designed by Peltomäki depicts Finland surrounded by the growth rings of a tree, symbolising Finland's years of independence.

The designer of the reverse, Jennifer Tuomisto, wanted to convey the value of diversity in her design. 
The reverse bears two clasped hands, one black and one white.
