The Championship tournament is being held in Helsinki and Stockholm (with the semifinal and final to be played in Helsinki) this year, and a 5€ coin is being released both as Unc and Proof. The Unc piece will be issued at face value.

Very nice design. When they issue these at "face value" are the supplies plentiful?


At 180 000 mintage is relatively plentiful for Finland. However, the last 5€ hockey coin was issued at face value and now carries a fair premium. Not sure if the coins got 'lost' in the hands of visitors to the games or what happened to make them a bit more valuable. And of course there are the Euro collectors at large. 100 000 will be sold in 'booklets'.
