Finnish banknotes – history and design
Bulgarian-Finnish friendship society decided to use a distinctive way to promote the Independence of Finland. We chose to trace the history of Finland through its banknotes.
The exhibition, however, went beyond the field of numismatics and marked the highlights of Finland’s political and cultural life. It covered the period from XIX century till the end of 2002, when Finland accepted the Еuro. Apart from recalling common historical data, it also revealed slightly known facts about the life of Finnish people and development of the Finnish society during that period. For the first time ever, Finnish history is showed through its national currency.
Money is the one of the major evidence of the independence of country. Only such states can issue its own currency, which is accepted from other states and, most important, from people in the same country.
