5 euro – Punkaharju Ridge
Finland’s national landscapes symbolise the Finnish character and have a generally recognised significance in Finland’s national culture, history and perception of nature. Mint of Finland will release a base-metal commemorative coin series on Finnish national landscapes. In the summer of 2017, the Finns voted for nine of their most beloved national landscapes to be featured on the coins. The third commemorative coin released in the series pays tribute to Punkaharju in Savonlinna. The obverse of the commemorative coin depicts an aerial view from the summit of Punkaharju, while the reverse bears an image of the map of Finland. The design of the coin is based on a photograph taken by Hannu Vallas. Proof-quality coins are packed in cardboard packages and come with certificates of authenticity.
