Few new minor design adjustments: the date has been moved from around the edge to under the portrait, and the legend changed to "Queen of Gibraltar".
The portrait with the date below was previously used on the 2011 and 2012 Christmas 50 pence.
So far only the 5p and 50p are confirmed. Also, the 5 pence 2012 is still CuNi (not magnetic).

For Arvo Ylppö (1887-1992), children always came first. The coin celebrating the distinguished physician, who always worked for the future of families, reminds us of the importance of medicine and health care. The coin commemorating Finnish health pays tribute to a persistent visionary, who understood the significance of freely and equally available health care.
The coin designed by Reijo Paavilainen is heavy with symbolism and uses colour in an interesting and playful manner. The obverse depicts Lastenlinna hospital, where Arvo Ylppö worked for 43 years as chief physician. He spent his long life working for the welfare of the Finnish people. As a token of gratitude, the names of children inscribed on the coin spell the word "kiitos", "thank you" in Finnish.
