Finland’s national landscapes symbolise the Finnish character and have a generally recognised significance in Finland’s national culture, history and perception of nature. The obverse of the Finnish National Landscape Koli coin depicts the view from the summit of Koli. The commemorative coin is designed by Erkki Vainio on the basis of a photograph taken by Juha-Pekka Jarvenpaa.
The design shows three circular fields that are joined together at the centre. The three fields represent the trias politica, separation of powers into three different branches: a legislative, an executive, and a judiciary power. The year of issuance ‘2019’ is placed centre left. The indication of the issuing country ‘FI’ and the mint mark are placed bottom right.
