The Central Bank of Finland , today, issued a €2 commemorative coin commemorating the 150th anniversary since the birth of the Finnish artist Helene Schjerfbeck. The painting chosen for the coin’s motive is one of a long series of self-portraits in which the artist depicts her aging self with honesty and emotion. The coin is designed by sculptor Erja Tielinen. The mint of Finland minted 2,000,000 coins - 13,000 in proof version and 1,987,000 in UNC.
Between the 5th-14th of October, the Mint of Finland and Ateneum Art Museum celebrate the final days of the Helene Schjerfbeck exhibition in a memorable way. Exhibition visitors can receive this commemorative coin, dedicated to Schjerfbeck, as part of their change when making a cash purchase.
