Jean Sibelius Collector Coin
Posted on 6 May 2015
for your collection, as a keepsake, or as a gift to a music lover.
The Jean Sibelius collector coin represents Finnishness at its most profound. It is a beautiful and touching gift with a place in the home of any Finnish person or music lover of any nationality.
The collector coin’s obverse depicts the starry sky of Ainola and a copse of pine trees, among which Sibelius was often seen lost in thought. The reverse bears the neck of a violin, the composer’s favoured instrument.
The maximum mintage of the EUR 10 silver Jean Sibelius collector coin is 10,000, and 50 coins will be numbered. The maximum mintage of the golden Jean Sibelius collector coin with a nominal value of EUR 100, is 5,000.
Proof-quality Jean Sibelius collector coins are minted with a polished die, finished, and placed in a protective clear plastic casing set in a gift box that includes the coin’s story. The box of the golden collector coin is made of wood.
