Finland is a Northern European nation bordering Sweden, Norway, and Russia. Its capital, Helsinki, occupies a peninsula and surrounding islands in the Baltic Sea. Helsinki is home to the 18th-century sea fortress Suomenlinna, the fashionable Design District, and diverse museums. The Northern Lights can be seen from the country's Arctic Lapland province, a vast wilderness with national parks and ski resorts.

The Finnish markka was the currency of Finland from 1860 until 28 February 2002, when it was replaced by the Euro. The markka was divided into 100 pennies. The markka was introduced in 1860 by the Bank of Finland, replacing the Russian Ruble.

Today we are discussing a 5 Markka banknote issued in 1963. The obverse has a Conifer branch in centre; while the reverse features the State Coat of Arms.
