Scripophily.fi, which specialises in collecting obsolete share certificates, is challenging companies to donate old, cancelled share certificates for an auction, the proceeds from which will be wholly used on work for the Baltic Sea.

The hobby is clearly becoming increasingly popular also in Finland.
