This is the second coin of the Finnish Coins series which have the theme of Finnish Presidents. The second president of Finland was æLauri Kristian RelanderÆ (1883-1942). Relander, a member of the Agricultural Party (now the Centre Party), was president from 1925 to 1931. He was known as a weak, colourless president and chose not to stand for re-election after 1931. On the coin is an image of Relander looking forward. The back of this series of bimetallic coins is always the same, a cityscape as seen from an open book.
