    Order a purse of 10 Fox coins of Finland Proper for your collection, or as a memento or gift.   The provincial coin, with a nominal value of five euros, depicts the fox with Turku Castle in the background. The collector coin’s reverse bears the historic coat of arms of Finland Proper.

    The purse, emblazoned with the Mint of Finland logo, is manufactured from recycled materials by the Globe Hope design company.
    The Fox collector coin is part of the Animals of the Provinces series, which is the third coin series minted in honour of Finland’s historic provinces.  The first provincial coin for Finland Proper, struck by Mint of Finland in 2010, commemorated the province’s tradition of high-quality wood carving with a depiction of the Rusko tankard.
    For the Provincial Buildings series, Finland Proper received a coin commemorating Turku Cathedral in 2013.

     

    The wily fox

    The emblematic animal of Finland Proper, the fox, is a wily protagonist of many fairy stories and folk tales. The fox is an adaptable animal that is not overly choosy about its habitat or food.  Despite being hunted extensively, the fox remains common all over Finland. Its intelligence and adaptability have enabled the fox to survive in diverse environments regardless of hunting.
