Poppy Day https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remembrance_Day 101 years
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
Y por añadir algo más… https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horatio_Nelson
Muerto Nelson en la Batalla de Trafalgar, el HMS VIctory atracó con su cuerpo en Gibraltar para, posteriormente, ser enterrado en Londres.

The Ministry of Finance’s tender for the sale and marketing of Finnish commemorative coins, coin sets and €2 special coins was won by Oy Nordic Moneta Ab. The contract between the Ministry of Finance and Nordic Moneta runs from 1 December 2019 to 31 December 2022, and includes an option for two one-year extensions. Their agreement also includes the production of Finnish commemorative coins.
Finnish euro commemorative coins and €2 special coins minted before 2019 may still be bought from Mint of Finland’s webshop and from retailers. According to information we have received from the Ministry of Finance, the €2 special coin for 2019 is not available for sale to collectors until further notice. The Ministry of Finance will announce separately whether or not other collector coin products, such as the Constitution Act of Finland 1919 special coin will be made available for sale this year.
In questions concerning the sale and issue of new Finnish special coins, we kindly ask you to contact the Ministry of Finance direct at email@example.com
Mint of Finland will continue to pursue its chosen strategy of focusing on international central bank customers. In 2018, exports of circulation coins and blanks accounted for 93% of the company’s revenue. Mint of Finland considers it important to overhaul the Finnish commemorative coin institution with a view to preserving the vitality of the commemorative coin business.
