Presidents of Finland – Risto Ryti, proof

The popular Presidents of Finland series continues with the beautiful Risto Ryti collector coin. Risto Ryti's collector coin is a part of the Finland 100 programme celebrating the centenary of Finland's independence. This presidential coin is made in Finland and, like all collector coins, preserves its lustre best in proof quality. 


The collector coin pays tribute to Risto Ryti (1889–1956), the fifth president of the Republic of Finland, holding office in 1940–1944. 

Part of the Finland100 programme

Radiating prestige, this collector coin is part of the new Presidents of Finland series, which Mint of Finland will release by decree of the Ministry of Finance in 2016–2017.

The collector coin and its packaging

Why proof? 

A collector coin is at its most beautiful in proof quality. Proof-quality collector coins are minted with a polished die, finished, and placed in a protective clear plastic casing set in a cardboard package. The coin will best withstand the test of time and remain as a memento in your collection in its original package.

Collector coin design

The obverse of the coin bears a portrait of Risto Ryti. All coins in the series will share the same reverse. 

The reverse features a landscape of Finnish fields framing an open book depicting a constructed urban environment. The motif symbolises the president's mandate from the people. The collector coins are designed by Tero Lounas.

Delivery and returns

Postage is EUR 7 for domestic orders and EUR 20 to other EU Member States, regardless of how many products are ordered. Collector coins have the 14-day right of exchange and return provided for in the Finnish Consumer Protection Act.
