Finland 1, 5, and 10 Pennia  1864 to 1894
Finland 1, 5, and 10 Pennia 1864 to 1894

Your coin is from Finland, Gary. Alexander III ruled that country from 1881 to 1894 and the large script A on the front of the coin represents his monogram. The 1 penni, 5 pennia, and 10 pennia coins look very similar to each other, with only minor variations in the design. The larger 10 pennia coins have a wreath on the reverse.

The large A stands for Alexander. Earlier coins have a II instead of a III under the A, indicating Alexander the second or his successor, Alexander the third. This page applies to both designs.

The listing below gives approximate catalog values for these coins. Be sure to convert these catalog values to actual buy and sell values before you consider a transaction. Our Terminology page describes how to do this.

1 PENNI
worn: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value

There are wide variations with date in the 1 penni series. Specifically, coins with the following dates are worth substantially more than the catalog values quoted above: 1865, 1870, 1884. Coins with the following dates are worth substantially less than the catalog values quoted above: 1883, 1888, 1891, 1892, 1893, 1894.
