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 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eino_Leino) (90th death anniversary) and the other to commemorate Georg Henrik von Wright (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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.
