    Though a Swedish venture, the colonial foothold established in what is now Delaware did include some Finnish participation as well. At the time, Finns were subjects of the Swedish crown, and were a large contingent of the eventual settlers. As such, this medal was commissioned in Finland in order to commemorate their role in the colony, paralleling the Swedish and American commemoratives.
