Åland Autonomy 100 Years 2 €
Åland is an autonomous, demilitarised, Swedish-speaking region of Finland. The League of Nations granted Finland sovereignty over Åland in 1921. Finland was placed under an obligation to guarantee to the population of the islands their Swedish culture, language, local customs and the system of self-government. On the obverse side of the special euro features a summery archipelago. The field along the upper edge features the text: ÅLANDS SJÄLVSTYRELSE 100 ÅR, and along the lower edge: AHVENANMAAN ITSEHALLINTO 100 VUOTTA. Both text mean "Åland Autonomy 100 Years", the first in Swedish and latter in Finnish.
