The 2 euro special coin celebrates the centennial of our national author, Academician Väinö Linna, born in December 1920.
Linna in profile dominates the averse of the coin. The arcs in the background are like threads from which Linna – who had worked at a textile mill after the war – spun the plots of his works. The coin was designed by Architect Petri Neuvonen.
