Finland 1st Free 25 Pennia Unc
Finland was under Russian rule from about 1809 on, and it was not until 1917 that
it gained it’s independence. We have some of the first coins to be issued by
Finland as a Free country.
These 1917 25 Pennia look just like the coins issued by Russia for Finland, with
one little change. If you look on the side with the double headed eagle you will notice,
for the first time, that the Russian crown is no longer evident between the eagles two
heads. This removal of the crown celebrated Finland’s freedom and independence.
These Silver 25 Pennia coins dated 1917 are in Uncirculated condition and are now
a 100 years old. A rather nice and historically important coin and in Uncirculated condition.
