What makes for more interesting news is that according to a Finnish coin site news item in Finnish, both logos will appear on coins dated 2010 as the switch to the new logo will happen sometime during the year.

Staying true to tradition, his "different" illustrates the teamwork spirit of the engraving workshop. So this signature depicts a pentagon with the letters AG, which stand for "Atelier de Gravure" (engraving workshop) and MP standing for "Monnaie de Paris et Pessac" inside it. The motif is completed by Yves Sampo's own initials on either side of it.
