1978 Finland 20 Pennia

Do you have Finland coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Here is some more of that old money that is no longer legal tender. I do feel kind of lucky to get coins at time when they were so diverse. My coin vaults are loaded with demonetized coins that have, for the most part, stopped circulating.

SUOMEN TASAVALTA (THE REPUBLIC OF FINLAND) K (Timo Koivuranta Mint) 1978
20 PENNIÄ (20 PENCE or CENTS)
Love that tree design. Looks like something out of a children's book.

Finland switched to the Euro in 2002. Ten years have passed since the old coins were last legal but they have not become rare or valuable. Demonetizing money does raise the value a little but rarely enough to turn a profit. Oh and I am speaking of collectors value since exchange rates drops like rock or remains frozen by law.

Here's the stats...
Type / Country: 20 Penniä / Finland
Year: 1978
Mintage: 10,014,000
Metal: Aluminum-Bronze
Value: $0.020 in Very Fine

Do you have a coin form Finland and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.
