    The enchantment of the wild never fades. A coin that immortalises the beauty of the wild makes for a fine gift or complement to any collection. This collector coin minted in honour of the Northern wilderness reminds us of the magical beauty of our coniferous forests.

    The North is part of the taiga zone of conifers encircling the northern hemisphere. The mental landscape of huntsmen and other inhabitants of the North is inspiring no matter the season, as it shifts from pure white snow to the riot of autumn colour.

    The coin’s obverse features boughs of the most familiar conifer, the pine. The adaptability of the pine is without equal, since the tree retains its needles through the long winter and is protected from forest fires by its thick, shell-like bark.

    The fifth coin in the award-winning Northern Nature series

    Wilderness is the fifth coin released in the internationally acclaimed Northern Nature series. Mint of Finland’s Northern Nature series was nominated “Series of the Year” at the international commemorative coin contest held in Russia in September 2013.

    The previous coins released by Mint of Finland in the series in 2012–2013 are Summer, Flora, Fauna and Winter.
