Exhibition at the Bank of Finland Museum: Our mutual debt – Finnish government borrowing 1859–2015

The history of Finnish government borrowing dates back to the 1800s.The government has raised loans to finance infrastructure investments, bolster the Bank of Finland’s foreign reserves and increase the room for fiscal policy manoeuvre. Most of central government borrowing has been carried out through the issuance of bonds in both domestic and international financial markets.

The new exhibition at the Bank of Finland Museum shows a collection of Finnish government bonds through the decades, beginning with the first railway bond issued in 1859. The exhibition also presents a cross-section of developments in central government debt and its history.

The exhibition is a joint project of the Bank of Finland and State Treasury.

The Bank of Finland Museum is located at Snellmaninkatu 2 in the Kruununhaka district of central Helsinki. Entrance is free of charge.
