Gazing out of my window at Turku Cathedral has taken on a new meaning. I just learnt that today
Finland commemorates the founder of the written Finnish language (and Bishop of Turku), Mikael Agricola.


He also has his own commemorative €10 coin! http://goo.gl/3owiL

I'm only in Finland for a year, so I often feel like a bit of a tourist stumbling over this sort of
information. Do any other linguistic scholars around the world have their own day and/or coin??
