Special minting of the 1-krona coin in 2009
The Riksbank hat geschrieben:Next year (2009) it will be 200 years since Finland was separated from the Kingdom of Sweden. The Riksbank will mark the memory of this event by minting a special version of the 1-krona coin.

The General Council of the Riksbank has chosen as a motif a suggestion by designer Annie Winblad Jakubowski. The motif, which includes a quotation from the poet Johan Ludvig Runeberg – "Den underbara sagan om ett land på andra sidan hafvet” (the wondrous tale of a land on the other side of the sea) – will be on the reverse of the 1-krona coin. The obverse, or front of the coin will remain unchanged with the picture of the King.

All 1-krona coins issued in 2009 will be of this special version. The coin will be launched on 15 January 2009 at a ceremony in the Riksdag, the Swedish Parliament.

The Government has appointed a national committee for the bicentenary of events in 1809. More information can be found at Märkesåret 1809.

Sveriges Riksbank hat geschrieben:New motif on this year's 1-krona coin

DATE 15/01/2009

All 1-krona coins minted in 2009 will carry a new motif on their reverse to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Finland’s separation from Sweden.

The coin is being presented today to King Carl XVI Gustaf and to Finland’s President Tarja Halonen by the Chairman of the General Council of the Riksbank, Johan Gernandt. This takes place in connection with the opening ceremony for the Landmark Year of 1809 in the Riksdag, the Swedish parliament.

The reverse of the 1-krona has a special strike composed by designer Annie Winblad Jakubowski. This consists of a symbolic depiction of the sea as a link connecting Sweden and Finland. Along the upper edge is the quotation “DEN UNDERBARA SAGAN OM ETT LAND PÅ ANDRA SIDAN HAFVET” (the wonderful tale of a land beyond the sea), taken from Johan Ludvig Runeberg's book “Studentbesöket i Finland 1857”. The obverse of the coin is unchanged and depicts King Carl XVI Gustaf in profile. The designer is Ernst Nordin.


The coin is manufactured by the Mint of Finland.
