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.

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.

There is at least (maybe even more, I'm not sure) 15 Polish coins. Look for History of Polish Coins and History of Zloty series.

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

Israel 1961,1962 lira coins (replica half shekel of them)

Israel 1973,74,75 Pidyon Haben coins have 7 mini ancient shekalim on them

Israel 5 agorah coin has an accient coin on it.

There are also a few other Israel coins that have coins on them. Just can't think of them off hand...

Courtesy is the one coin you can never have too much of or be stingy with.

Australia has plenty; I'm sure someone else has already mentioned them.

They have coins commemorating the Spanish 8 reales, the "Holey" Dollar and other proclamation coinage, as well as for the 100th anniversary of Australian coinage.
