On the few coins with something looking like an actual globe (Jamaica is a real laugh), you get the well-known effect that the side facing the viewer will show the country where the globe was made. I guess the big yellow thing in the sky is either the Isle of Man, sliding on a monorails, or a waffle iron. :-[

Are you sure the foggy disc on the UK coin is meant to be a globe and not e.g. a clock face?

It's meant to be both, since it also celebrates Greenwich Mean Time: symbolically, for the world's time, London represents the centre of the world.

This coin type is hard enough to find as it is. In this condition, it is a little miracle.
