Yes, the neutrality was a wrong word, they just dont want to hurt anybodys feelings.

Doom church (right side church tower) is #1 landmark in Helsinki, Uusimaa. You can see it a far away from the sea when approaching to helsinki harbour by ferry.

i dont know if that neutrality thing counts also for collectors coin as they legal tender only in the country of issuance

Funny that they could not decide one landmark for Uusimaa coin. Now there is Uspensky Cathedral and Doom Church, two very different buildings in center of Helsinki city, representing two different religion. That neutrality again?

I wonder if these coins will get similar packaging with booklets about the provinces/buidlings. The provincial series of 5Euros of Finland is one of my favourite series of coins.
