Åland has been following its own path and been building its own culture for almost 100 years now. The design of the newest Finnish special euro coin, celebrating the jubilee year, is called Vår väg (Our road). The pictorial subject was designed by Ulrika Kjeldsen, an artist from Åland.

The averse of the coin depicts an archipelagic scenery: a shipping lane with sea marks, the bow of a boat, and a hand holding a compass. The field along the upper edge features the text: ÅLANDS SJÄLVSTYRELSE 100 ÅR, and along the lower edge:: AHVENANMAAN ITSEHALLINTO 100 VUOTTA.

Åland is an autonomous, demilitarised  and Swedish-speaking part of Finland. The Finnish Parliament approved the Act on Åland autonomy in spring 1920, but the final solution was reached through arbitration by the League of Nations in 1921. Finland retained sovereignty over Åland, but Åland got autonomy and guarantees for the Swedish language and the local culture and usages. 

The centennial autonomy of Åland is celebrated for a full year, starting on 9 June 2021. The jubilee year  celebration peaks on 9 June 2022, on the centennial of the first meeting of the Åland County Council’s first meeting in 1922.
