Syria, 50 piastres, 1947.  I don't know what it represents, but it looks quite impressive. It makes me think of those organs they used to play in cinemas, for some reason.

Some modern Dutch coins also focus on various geometric patterns. The gulden and cent circulation pieces "played" with lines, squares and rectangles. These photos (5 ct to 2.5 G) are from geldmuseum.nl; the actual coins do not have the same size of course. The tiny photo in the second image shows the sizes. On other side of each coin there is Queen Beatrix - see the 5 gulden piece.

Aruba, which is an autonomous part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, picked triangle patterns for the four "cent" denominations.

This Portuguese 5 escudos of 1999 carries an intriguing pattern, but does it signify anything?

The 10 escudos from the same series also shows an interesting pattern.

My first thought on this one was a snowflake but looking closer it isn't hexagonal so it is some other pattern.

The Tajikistan 2011 set has 5 coins but just two patterns. The same pattern appears on the 5, 10, 20 and 50 dirhams, whilst the 1 somoni design shows a different one.

If you look carefully, the ring around the ancient "spade" coin is actually a string of (Buddhist) swastikas.
