Quote from: coffeetime on June 14, 2011, 07:28:16 PMHere's a thought: has any country issued circulation coins where each obverse design is different, and/or each reverse design is different? What made me think of such an idea is the recent news that Fiji is to replace the Queen's effigy on its circulation coins:"Important and iconic flora and fauna of Fiji has been selected to replace her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's portrait."This is ambiguous and could suggest that a different flower or beast could adorn the obverse of each coin. I suspect that it will turn out to be a single design featuring various flora and fauna, but time will tell.The only example of different obverses I can think of is where coins have a coat of arms, but on the higher denominations a pair of supporters is added to the coat of arms. I can't think of any concrete examples just now, but rightly or wrongly I have Georgia (central Asia) in my head.
