MINT OF FINLAND DESCRIPTION
In 2015, 70 years will have passed from the end of the Second World War. The 70 Years of Peace in Europe collector coin designed in honour of these years of peace is a fantastic memento, gift or addition to your own collection. Order the coin celebrating peace from our online shop!
Instead of the conventional dove often used to symbolise peace, the collector coin’s motifs depict the dramatic juxtaposition of war and peace, but also the bridge connecting the two. Behind the arch of a bridge on the coin’s reverse lie the elements of ruin and destruction that symbolise war: debris and flames. On the coin’s obverse, shoots, leaves and fruits wind along the same arch, symbolising peace and growth. The coin’s obverse and reverse, peace and war, meet on the deck of the bridge.
The maximum mintage of the proof-quality EUR 10 silver collector coin is 10,000, and 70 coins will be numbered. The coins are numbered on the reverse, and the numbered coins are sold separately in glass cases.
Proof-quality collector coins are minted with a polished die, finished, and placed in a protective clear plastic casing set in a gift box that tells the coin’s story.
The 70 Years of Peace in Europe collector coin is part of the European Silver Star programme in which European countries release coins with a shared theme. The collector coin is designed by Petri Neuvonen.
