Finnish euro

The adoption of the euro in Finland replaced the Finnish markka (FIM) with an exchange rate of 1 EUR = 5.94573 FIM.

Finnish euro coins use only three different topics. The copper and bronze coins (1 cent, 2 cents, 5 cents, 10 cents, 20 cents and 50 euro cents) use the lion of the Finland coat of arms, designed by Heikki Häiväoja.

On the 1 euro coins the designer Pertti Mäkinen represented two swans in flight, while on the 2-euro coin the cartoonist Raimo Heino reported a camemoro flowers, a plant of the rose family present in northern Europe.

All coins bear the 12 stars of the founding countries of the European Union, the year and the identifier of the mint of coinage: M for coins minted from 1999 to 2006, FI for coins minted after 2007.

On the edge of the 2 euro there is the inscription Suomi (Finland in Finnish) and FINLAND (Finland in Swedish).

Because of their small size, and consequent difficulty of use, the coins from 1 cent and 2 euro cents were withdrawn from circulation only used in packaging for collectors.
