Internationally, Jean Sibelius (1865–1957) is Finland's most successful composer. He has been and still is a strong influence on many composers in Finland and abroad. 

Jean Sibelius' best-known works include Symphonies 1–7, Finlandia, Valse triste, Violin Concerto in D minor, Op. 47 and, drawing their inspiration from the Kalevala tradition of Finnish folk poetry, Kullervo and the Karelia Suite.

The national side of the commemorative two-euro coin depicts the starry sky of Ainola and a copse of pine trees, under which Sibelius was captured in several photographs. The side of the coin dedicated to Sibelius is designed by Nora Tapper. The commemorative coin's reverse is identical to that of ordinary two-euro circulation coins.
