You can recognize at least one motif: the swans that were in the 100 FIM banknote now fly in the Finnish 1€ coin :)
I like his... but I still don't have any coin of Finland. :? :?

What does the Rouble look like?
Is it possible to pay in euros, in St Petersburg?

I definitely like it, partly because it lacks a border! :)

:lol:
This "bird of prey" is called "Fette Henne" (fat hen), because it looks rather overweighted in comparison to the eagles on previous Deutschmark coins. This chicken is hanging around in the parliament as a sculpture made of gypsum. The eagles on German money have changed in design over the last hundred years. They became more well-fed looking, while the older ones looked more hungry and aggressive.

I have some old German coins, and to be honest, I like the current designs of the 1 and 2€ coins the most !

(Are it eagles ? I'm not sure what kind of bird :D)

We too had a sailing ship, it was on the biggest denomination, 1000 mk. Not as elegant as in your escudos, but anyway. Here's a picture of it:
is 1000 markka written in 2 languages as it seems to me? is it finish and swedish? and if it is that, why? aren't swedish speaking people only 6% or so of Finland's population?

as to the elegant, yes I really loved 2000 escudos note...

another beautifull note of the eurozone was the 1000 dracmas

but this 1000mk are nice too :P , I said that I never saw any, but it was in my hands, I've already seen some pics, and that with the swams it's really lovely :wink:

The Germans usually stick to eagles (although the thing on the 2e coin resembles a heater) :?
