was rendered
obsolete.
The Finnish markka
(Finnish: Suomen
markka, abbreviated
mk, Swedish: finsk
mark, currency code:
FIM) was the currency
of Finland from 1860
until 28 February 2002,
when it ceased to be
legal tender. The
markka was replaced
by the euro (€), which
had been introduced, in
cash form, on 1 January
2002, after a
transitional period of
three years when the
euro was the official
currency but only
existed as 'book
money'. The dual
circulation period –
when both the Finnish
markka and the euro
had legal tender status
– ended on 28 February
2002.
The markka was
divided into 100 pennies
( Finnish: penni, with
numbers penniä,
Swedish: penni),
postfixed "p"). At the
point of conversion, the
rate was fixed at €1 =
5.94573 mk.
