Description of obverse and reverse The Bank of Finland’s collector coin depicts Finland’s national bird, the whooper swan, which covers both sides of the coin. The obverse side of the collector coin depicts the body and the wing of the swan. The swan’s other wing can be seen on the reverse side.
A brief annotation The swan has been the Finnish emblem for hundreds of years. The design of the coin contains a complex symbolism related to the activities of the Bank of Finland: the swan has been used as the theme of both Finnish notes and coins. The Bank of Finland is the world’s fourth oldest central bank. As Finland passed from Swedish rule to Russian control in 1809, the financial system was overhauled. In 1811, Tsar Alexander I of Russia issued a decree to establish the ’Exchange, Lending and Deposits Bureau’ in the city of Turku. This, our nation’s first bank, became the Bank of Finland.
