Latest News from Finland
Our Finnish Euro sets are now in stock.
As at 16th January, we had Finnish Euro coin sets in stock. We have managed to obtain a supply of the elusive 1¢ and 2¢ coins. These are in stock. so we are able to supply complete sets from stock. These are our own "unofficial" sets which are currently of mixed dates.

A Finnish Problem
There is currently a problem with the Finnish sets, the Finnish mint, in its wisdom, has decided unilaterally that the 1 and 2 cent coins are too low a value, and has decided not to issue any for circulation, although they were issued in their starter packs, and presumably will be issued in their official sets. We have since heard that the European Union have ordered Finland to produce and release supplies of these coins. So far, all this information is unofficial, but we are attempting to get a clarification from the Finnish mint.
As mentioned above, we have now managed to find a source for the two smallest copper coins, which are now in stock.
