5 euro Uusimaa: Helsinki Cathedrals and Uspenski Cathedrals - 2012 - Series: Buildings of the Provinces - Finland

The coin of Uusimaa depicts the Helsinki and Uspenski Cathedrals. ”I did not want to portray the subjects in the obvious manner, but rather find a new perspective on them. The coin of Uusimaa unites two architecturally different buildings and creates a dialogue between them. Helsinki Cathedral was designed by a German architect and Uspenski Cathedral by a Russian one, so these buildings also serve to illustrate the international character of Helsinki's architecture.”
