A brief annotation The organic Protecting the Baltic Sea collector coin is made by using recycled silver. The Baltic Sea coin has a heart. The coin celebrates the sea that has many faces and passes the message from one generation to another of what is important to us. Mint of Finland’s 2011 ethical collector coin commemorates the world’s second largest brackish-water basin - the Baltic Sea. The Baltic Sea’s vulnerability is owed to its fundamental features: it is a low, cold, brackish inland sea. Human-induced eutrophication endangers marine species and threatens the livelihoods and recreational activities throughout the Baltic Sea. The problems of the sea are a concern for all countries in the region.
