FINLAND

Letterpress-printed by the Finnish Treasury, the first stamps of Finland were issued on 3 March 1856. They depicted the Finnish coat of arms featuring a standing lion; their face value was in Russian kopecks, however, starting in 1866, Finland issued stamps denominated in Finnish pennia. The 1889 definitive stamps featured the country's name in Russian. Two years later the new definitive stamps were printed at St. Petersburg and were denominated in Russian kopecks. Although Russian influence was constantly increasing, in 1895, Finland returned to the local currency. During the last phase of World War I, following the Russian Revolution, Finland proclaimed its independence and the first stamp reflecting the new status were issued on 1 October 1917.
