Iceland, 1968, 50 kronur.  50th anniversary of the Parliament Building in Reykjavik.

Side note: The building (Alþingishúsið) is actually a little older; the 50 years refer to the 50 years of independence (initially in a personal union with Denmark).

Here is a German €2 coin showing the castle in Schwerin which also serves as the state parliament of Mecklenburg western Pomerania.

Christian X - he was king of Denmark and king of Iceland.

Here we have the National Assembly (Nationalversammlung) of 1848, the first pretty democratically elected German parliament. It had its seat in St. Paul's in Frankfurt.

This is the building in Berlin that, between 1894 and 1933, was the house of the Reichstag, the parliament of the German Empire. The coin commemorates that 100 years before the German Empire was founded; it shows the building as it was before the '33 fire.

In 1999 that Reichstag became the main building of the Bundestag (federal parliament). Here it is, with its modern dome, on a coin that commemorates 10 years of German unity. Also attached is a photo of that dome.

Two more - this first one is from an Austrian History theme series. (Note how they do not differentiate between the republic 1918-33 and the Austrofascist regime 1933-38.) The second one is about 60 years Second Republic.

In 2004 Luxembourg issued a €25 collector coin dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the first direct EP elections. Now whether the piece actually depicts any part of any existing building, I don't know. :) The other side shows Grand Duke Henri as usual.
