Finnish euro coins

From Academic Kids

Template:EU coins menu

Finnish euro coins have three designs, though two of them are each found on one coin only. The design for the minor and middle series of coins is by Heikki Hivoja, the design for the 1 euro coin was done by Pertti Mkinen and the national side of the 2 euro coin is by the hand of Raimo Heino. All designs feature the 12 stars of the EU and the year of imprint.

€ 0.01 and € 0.02 coins are not used in Finland; only few were minted, for collectors. Sums are rounded to the nearest € 0.05; hence sums ending in € 0.01, € 0.02, € 0.06 or € 0.07 are rounded down, and those ending in € 0.03, € 0.04, € 0.08 or € 0.09 are rounded up. The rounding is applied to the grand total only, while individual prices are still shown and summed up with € 0.01 precision.

For images of the common side and a detailed description of the coins, see Euro coins.
