This coin is dedicated to Finnish nature.

The design of the coin is very interesting. There is an inner circle with a background that looks like a map. It is a map indeed, but it depicts a portion of the surface of the moon. Very original Finland – possibly the first time ever that a cartographic representation of the moon has appeared on a coin!

Against this background is a bare branch of a birch tree and sitting thereon is a bird – a crow and chosen as a crow is supposedly intelligent and reacts appropriately to changing circumstances - this standing for the mentality of the Finns.

Around the inner circle is a ring within which we see, at nine o’clock, the country designation “FI”, at six o’clock the year of issue “2017” and at three o’clock the mint mark.
