Finland 5, 10, 25, and 50 Pennia and 1 Markka 1918 to 1952

I guess Finland did not want to waste space on their coins with inscriptions. They used all the room for that neat lion!

These coins are minted in copper, copper-nickel, and iron. They all have the Finnish lion on the front and the denomination on the back. There are 100 pennia in 1 markka. Approximate values in the listings below come from the Standard Catalog of World coins. The catalog gives values for every date and mint mark. We summarize them with general values. Here they are:
