The first collector coin launched by Mint of Finland in Satakunta in 2010 paid tribute to bobbin lace tradition, which goes back hundreds of years in Satakunta. For the Provincial buildings series, Satakunta received a coin commemorating Sammallahtimäki´s nearly forty burial cairns built as the resting place for the ancestors of the inhabitants of Satakunta. 

The emblematic animal of Satakunta, the beaver, is known for its dam-construction skills. The European beaver is an ancient species that has inhabited Finland since before the last ice age. The species was nearly hunted to extinction in Finland, but the population has since been bolstered by imported individuals. The Finnish European beaver population is still limited to approximately 1,000 individuals, mostly concentrated in the region of Satakunta.

If you are a keepsake collector or just looking for the perfect gift, we have good news for you. Mint of Finland skates right into the thrill of competition by releasing a collector coin to commemorate the 2012 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship. Give the following generations something to remember of this year's Championship!

The 2012 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship collector coin captures the exciting standoff and the key moment of the game: when the puck enters the goal. The reverse side of the coin depicts a player with the puck on his stick at the face-off, when the score is still even. The obverse side depicts a puck flying into the goal and the conclusion of the match. The coin is designed by Petri Neuvonen.

The polished, proof-quality collector coin comes packaged in a folder which tells the tale of the coin itself.

The story of ice hockey

Ice hockey world championships have been held since 1920, when the competition was held in Belgium. Before 2012, Finland has hosted the men's Ice Hockey World Championships on six occasions: in 1965, 1974, 1982, 1991, 1997, and 2003. Finland will host this year's World Championships with Sweden.

The highest position that Finland has achieved at a home championships is fourth, which was in 1974. The countries that have been crowned world champions on Finnish soil are the Soviet Union, three times; Canada, twice; and Sweden, once.

The “Lumberjack’s Candle Bridge” built in 1989 is currently regarded as Rovaniemi’s foremost landmark.

The bridge is named after its two tall columns which, with their bright lights, resemble lumberjack’s candles − logs sawn in two with a fire in between. A coffee pot won’t stay on top of these lumberjack’s candles, but they do illuminate the slopes of Ounasvaara hill and the surge of the River Kemijoki also during the darkest time of the year.

Far out at sea, in the strait between Åland and Sweden, lies the Sälskär lighthouse.

It was lit for the first time in 1868, when the island was inhabited by a lighthouse keeper and lighthouse guards with their families. The lighthouse, one of the most beautiful in the Baltic, illuminated the voyage of seafarers in the hard-tonavigate strait through which people voyage to new adventures or return home.
