Finland 1, 5, and 10 Pennia 1895 to 1917 | finland 5 pennia 10 1 monogram crown ribbon finnish finnland crpwn tiera crowns ribbons crowned halfcrown crwon tiarra sash initals These old Finnish coins bear the initial of Nicholas II, ruler of Finland from 1894 to 1917. Coins before Nicholas have, not surprisingly, a big A, for Alexander.

The 1, 5 and 10 pennia denominations look the same, except for size and for the number (1, 5, or 10) on the back of the coin over 'pennia.'

Coins dated after 1900 are worth less, but here are average catalog values for these coins in average circulated condition.
