The Sami Culture commemorative coin was issued on Sami National Day, February 6, and highlights the close relationship that the Sami people enjoy with nature.

The traditional Sami territory, Sápmi, is spread over the territories of four states, namely Finland, Sweden, Norway and Russia. There are approximately 10,000 Sami people living in Finland.

The reverse of the commemorative coin reminds us of the power of the sun in regulating the Sami year. The Sami are children of the sun – the moment when the first rays of the sun break through after the long polar night is still emotional to them.

Sami fishing culture is vibrant, and the obverse of the commemorative coin depicts a traditional form of fishing, juomustus, or net fishing beneath the ice. The triangles featured on the commemorative coin are a common shape and motif in the Sami community, symbolising, for example, the traditional Sami village, siida. The commemorative coin is designed by Inka Kangasniemi, a member of the Inari Sami people.
