Finland 1 Mark Gold Commemorative Coin of 2001 – Suomi 2001 – The Last Gold Bullion Coin, Proof
The gold coin weighing 8.6 grams is a beautiful tribute to the markka, the currency used in Finland from 1860 to 2001. Finland’s own currency was one of the cornerstones of independent Finland and was widely used in the late 20th century.
The common currency, the euro, was introduced at the beginning of 2002. This meant the end of the markka, which had been Finland’s independent currency for more than 140 years.
