The Finnish Nature two euro special coin depicts the full moon over the lighthouse island of Harmaja and a crow gazing down at the world from its perch. The special coin received its design from the winning photograph in the Blue and White special category of the Nature Photograph of the Year competition.
The winning photograph was shot by Kari Auvinen. The crow symbolises the modern Finnish character – an outwardly common but intelligent bird that reacts flexibly to new situations. The special coin will be launched at the Nature Photograph of the Year gala on 21 October 2017, and deliveries of the coins will begin on 23 October.
The special coin is part of the Finland 100 programme of the centenary of Finland's independence. The two-euro coins have been granted the Key Flag Symbol of Finnish origin.
The proof-quality commemorative coins are minted with a polished die, finished, and packaged in a protective clear plastic casing set in a package with a new look to celebrate Finland’s centenary. The package includes a certificate of authenticity that indicates the coin's technical specifications and tells its story.
All collector coins released by Mint of Finland in 2017 are part of the Finland 100 programme. See the centenary's collector coins!
