The Nature Conservation Act is one of the most important ways to safeguard Finnish biodiversity. Its importance was already recognised a hundred years ago.

The beetle (Tragosoma depsarium) shown on the reverse side of the coin reminds us of the importance of nature conservation. The species, a member of the longhorn beetle family, is classified as extremely endangered in Finland. Beetles mediate activities at multiple levels within natural ecosystems and are important to their functioning.

The pictoral theme of the commemorative coin has been designed by the artist Sandra Prami from Helsinki.
