The coin for the Provincial coin series is a hunter's coin, as it depicts the old Tavastian hunting tradition. The snare and bird’s talons featured in the Tavastia province coin speak of a tradition of life out in the wild that goes back thousands of years. Snares like this were often made by twisting together horsetail hair and flax. At the hunter’s belt would be a snare holster made from juniper with dozens of snares hanging from it, used to catch birds for the table.

In the Middle Ages, the historical province of Tavastia was a large territory. In addition to the current Tavastian counties, it included e.g. most of Central Finland, southern Pirkanmaa and northern Kymenlaakso.
