So, I found out that a family member that also collects coins (He has an impressive collection of special 2€ coins) has a weird version of the henrik von wright 2€.
The coin has a white inside and a gray/black ring. I have tried to clean it (with paper) but is it just a dirty coin or something else? And I do not have a picture. I'll see if he gives me a permission to take photos the coin.

And the weird thing is that the outer ring looks circulated and used and the inner coin uncirculated and shiny...

Probably a chemical reaction e.g. washed or done on purpose, I have seen copper-nickel coins with such a dark surface (mostly ground finds).
For the inner part maybe leaching of the copper made lighter.

​Probably. The thing that just it is almost uncirculated but someone probably got it almost uncirculated and got a great idea...But still, an interesting coin! And its a 2016 coin. Thanks for the reply!
