Finland 1, 5, and 10 Pennia  1895 to 1917
Finland 1, 5, and 10 Pennia 1895 to 1917

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.

1 PENNIA before 1906:
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $10
well preserved: $15
fully uncirculated: $25

1 PENNIA after 1905:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $2
well preserved: $3
fully uncirculated: $5

5 PENNIA before 1912:
worn: $2 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $20
well preserved: $50
fully uncirculated: $100

5 PENNIA after 1911:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $3
well preserved: $8
fully uncirculated: $15

10 PENNIA before 1914:
worn: $5 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $30
well preserved: $100
fully uncirculated: $300

10 PENNIA after 1913:
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $3
well preserved: $12
fully uncirculated: $25

If your coin is dark or more worn, it is worth less. In better shape, these coins can reach towards $100, especially the pre-1900 dates.

To properly interpret these catalog values, look on our Important Terminology page.

There are a few *better dates* as follows;

1 PENIA: no better dates, all as above
5 PENNIA: 1910 $100 in average circulated condition
10 PENNIA: 1898 $100 in average circulated
