interesting facts:
In 2007, together with the European change of reverses of coins with denominations 10 euro cent and higher, Finland complied with the European Commission's Directive on the obligation to sign obverses with the name of the issuing country. Finland has decided to place on obverses the country code in ISO 3166-2 standard - letters "FI".

In 2010 the mint in Vantaa changed its name from "Rahapaja Oy" (The Mint) to "Suomen Rahapaja Oy" (The Mint of Finland) and the logo with coins falling from cornucopia was replaced with a heraldic Finnish lion in a disk. The new mint mark was placed for the first time on the commemorative coin of 2 euro commemorating 150 years of Finnish currency. On other coins the new logo appeared from 2011.
