I see a plant (pomegranate?) growing out of a pot or basket. Maythem has shown that the pomegranate is a love symbol. The pot could stand for home or family or both. Neat design. A bit out of the ordinary.

Yes Peter, first photo shows a pomegranate. Pomegranates symbolises fertility, beauty and eternal life, in Persian mythology.

Maythem
Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".

Thank you gentlemen.
So that should make it a pomegranate growing out of a pot.
