This issue marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Konsta Jylhä, Finland's most famous folk musician and composer.

Jylhä started his musical career in the mid-1940s, where many of the songs played by his band became popular radio hits in Finland. In the early 1960s, following an accident that forced him to focus entirely on music, he also started composing songs. Two of his early works, ”Konsta’s better waltz” and ”The Silent Violin”, made him famous all over the country. Throughout his career, he composed some 70 pieces of folk music and 50 spiritual pieces. In 1969 Konsta Jylhä became a Master Musician. In 1971, he received the honorary title Director Musices, and in 1978 the Order of the Lion of Finland – Pro Finlandia Medal.

The obverse features a stylized portrait of Konsta Jylhä playing his violin. The reverse shows the F-holes of a violin top.
