2€ commemorative coin 2016 -
This coin is the first in a series of seven coins depicting Maltese prehistoric sites. The Ggantija Temples are two prehistoric temples on Gozo, the second-largest island in Malta. One of them is the oldest stone structure in the world, predating Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids by hundreds of years. Round in shape and containing statues of full-figured goddesses, the Ggantija temples were dedicated to the Great Earth Mother and probably included an oracle. The site was a place of pilgrimage for the ancient inhabitants of Malta.

2€ commemorative coin Estonia 2017 - Estonian road to independence
The 100th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia falls in 2018. But the state was not founded in a single day. Estonia gained autonomy after the February Revolution in Russia in 1917 when the province of Estonia was established. On 1 July 1917 the first representative parliament of the Estonian people, known as Maapäev, assembled. It declared itself the highest organ of power in Estonia on 15 November 1917. It was a big step towards statehood.

The design for the €2 commemorative coin depicts oak leaves, bare oak branches, and the trunk of an oak tree. The winding oak symbolises Estonia’s road to independence; the bare branches relate to the year 1917; and the leaves symbolise strength, achievement, and longevity, and also feature on the great coat of arms of the Republic of Estonia. The word MAAPÄEV (Assembly) is placed to the lower left of the main design.

The Estonian Provincial Assembly (Estonian: Maapäev) was elected after the February Revolution in 1917 as the national diet of the Autonomous Governorate of Estonia in Russian Empire. On November 28, 1917, after the October Revolution the Assembly declared itself the sovereign power on Estonia and called for the elections of the Estonian Constituent Assembly. On the eve of the German occupation of Estonia in World War I the council elected the Estonian Salvation Committee and issued the Estonian Declaration of Independence on February 24, 1918. After the German occupation of Estonia ended, the Maapäev continued as the legislative assembly of Estonia until 1919.

Gallen-Kallela maalid on rahvusvaheliselt ühed kõige tuntumad soome kunstiteosed.

2€ commemorative coin Finland 2017 - 100 years of Independence
Feature: The commemorative coin marks the 100th anniversarry of the Finnish indepenence. After the 1917 February Revolution, the position of Finland as part of the Russian Empire was questioned, mainly by Social Democrats. Since the head of state was the tsar of Russia, it was not clear who the chief executive of Finland was after the revolution. After several disagreements between the non-Socialists and the Social Democrats on the issue of who should hold power in Finland, the parliament, led by Per Evind Svinhufvud, finally declared Finland as an independent state, on December 6, 1917.
Description: The design is composed of many dots outlining the silhouette of the map of Finland. The text "Finland" in (Finnish and Swedish) and the years "1917" and "2017" (year of its independence and year in which the centenary anniversarry) is also shown.
