A commemorative coin to celebrate the Compulsory Education Act

The second commemorative coin issued in 2021 in Finland celebrates the centennial of the 1921 Compulsory Education Act. School and education have been important stepping stones on our way from a fledgling independent state to the modern European society we are today.

  • Mirror-like proof finish appreciated by collectors
  • Issue just 1,643 coins, of which 100 sequentially numbered

The pictorial subject of the commemorative coin is made up of semi-abstract and asymmetric shapes in various sizes. The obverse shows three children on their way to school, and the reverse  features a rooster, a well-known symbol of education in Finland, in relief. The letters A, B and C are to the left, and the symbols www. and @ to the right of the rooster. A computer mouse is shown in the rim below The face value of the coin, 20 €, is at the lower right of the reverse.

Enacted in 1921, the Compulsory Education Act states that all children aged 7 to 13 years must receive an education. Having just recently become independent, our young country could not afford to leave any part of the population’s potential unutilized.

During the hundred years that have gone by, Finland has developed from an obscure agrarian state into a country with high productivity and top technology. Without compulsory education and the best school system in the world this would not have been possible.
