Looked for the coins with the images of a coin and didn't find many of them - Polish 2004 "History of Zloty", Australian 1994 "Dollar Decade" and 2016 full set of "Anniversary of Decimal Coinage", and two Ukrainian "National Currency" coins (1996 and 2016) - I thought there would be more of them around.
Do you know more of such coins?

A few of my favourite coins from Israel have images of ancient Judean coins on them such as as these ½ Lira, 50 Sheqalim and 5 Agorot coins. Also the majority of Israeli coins have their designs inspired from other ancient Judean coins. The obverse design of this 1 New Sheqel coin is directly inspired by the obverse design of this ½ Ma'ah-Obol.

The Canadian Mint has a commemorative one right now, that somehow is sold out.



It's a celebration of Canadian coinage.

France has some. Liberia had one that commemorates the Krause catalog. I believe the entire prefecture bimetal series of Japan depicts a coin on one side. Coins of China before the socialist Revolution have coins with earlier spade shaped coins. The United States Ben Franklin commem has a coin on it. Thailand has coins that depict early bullet money. Argentina and Peru depict coins from their early history. I am sure there are others.. banknotes have a bunch with coins too.

Thank you all for your contributions, it seems that now I can start putting together a small collection of the coin-on-coin theme - something I wanted for quite a while though for the budget reasons I'll probably go with non-precious metals only.
So, if you have any of those coins for swap - drop me a line. And please, continue to add more info on this topic - I really appreciate it.

In Argentina the one peso coin 1992-2016 has an image of the first coins. Also, a lot of Argentine coins have the picture of the 1881 patacon, the first coin made by the bank. Also, Spain just made a coin commemorating the dollar coin (odd, right?) heres the pic


Glad to help, Ilan
