It appears that there will not be any 2 coin commemorating Karl Fazer. Finnish mint has proposed the finance ministry minting of two commemorative two-euro coins in 2016: one in honour of Eino Leino (90th death anniversary) and the other to commemorate Georg Henrik von Wright (100th birth anniversary). Planned mintage is 1 million pieces of each. The design is also a proposal to ministry of finance.
