Finland is a Type 2b set.  It is the only one.  Correct me if I am wrong.

Now we come to the Type 3 sets.

We saw that Type 2 sets had at least six coins sharing the same design. Type 3 sets have only three coins at most sharing a common design. Tiers 1 and 2 each have their own common design. Sometimes, tier 3 has its own common design, shared by the 1 and 2 euro coins - in that case, I call it a Type 3a. If the 1 and 2 euro each have their own design, then it is a Type 3b.

Type 3a.

Tier 1.  a a a
Tier 2.  b b b
Tier 3.  c c



Type 3b.

Tier 1.  a a a
Tier 2.  b b b
Tier 3.  c d

Spain's current 1 and 2 euro designs.



Spain's current euro set is also a Type 3a. Only the tier 3 designs have changed (1 and 2 euro), to honour King Felipe VI.

So, we have had twelve Type 3a sets. It is a popular design structure.

Next, the Type 3b sets.
