10. Bi-metallic Quiz Game #838…….…by Jack Hepler, USA
The 2011 Bi-metallic Two Euro special coin commemorates the Bank of Finland's anniversary. The Finnish nation achieved a landmark success when the Bank of Finland was founded. A national bank gave Finland a much needed support in its push for independence.
Artist Hannu Veijalainen has captured the essence of the event by choosing the Finnish swan, the national bird of Finland, as the coin's motif. For centuries the swan has stood for what it means to be a Finn.

In which year was the Bank of Finland founded?
