Authorised by the Ministry of Finance, the Mint of Finland issued 2010-2011 a coin series inspired by Finland’s historical provinces. There are nine historical provinces: Åland, Tavastia, Karelia, Lapland, Ostrobothnia, Satakunta, Savonia, Uusimaa and Finland Proper. Administratively the historic provinces ceased to exist in 1634 when the country, then a part of Sweden, was divided into counties.
The reverse of each provincial coin features the historical province’s coat of arms. On the obverse of the coin is an image closely related to the culture of the province.
The first coin in the series is the province of Finland Proper.
Engraver: Nora Tapper
