New bimetallic commemorative:

"Helsinki Cathedral and Uspenski Cathedral"

The neoclassical Cathedral and Uspenski Cathedral, which represents the Byzantine-Russian architectural tradition, also communicate Helsinki’s role as a gateway between East and West. In Helsinki, sophisticated Nordic unpretentiousness is flavoured with the opulence and colourfulness of the East, making the city’s architecture unique by world standards.
