Åland Autonomy 100 Years 20 

Åland is an autonomous, demilitarised, Swedish-speaking region of Finland. The League of Nations granted Finland sovereignty over Åland in 1921. Finland was placed under an obligation to guarantee to the population of the islands their Swedish culture, language, local customs and the system of self-government. The obverse features a summery archipelago. The field along the upper edge features the text: ÅLANDS SJÄLVSTYRELSE 100 ÅR, and along the lower edge: AHVENANMAAN ITSEHALLINTO 100 VUOTTA. Both text mean "Åland Autonomy 100 Years", the first in Swedish and latter in Finnish. The reverse features a human head in profile. The head is filled with important symbols of the cultural identity of Åland: a cowslip, a sailing ship, a roe deer, fishes, birds and a midsummer crown. The field along the upper edge features the text: SUOMI 2021 FINLAND, and the denomination, €20, is on the right hand side. The coin was designed by Ulrika Kjeldsen, an artist from Åland.
