Siberia, 10 kopeck, 1777.  Sables.  Thanks to forum member Zantetsuken for this image of his coin, possibly the most beautiful on the whole forum.

Croatia features a marten on the obverse of its modern 1 kuna and 2 and 5 kune coins.

The modern 1 kuna coin can be seen above (left).  To the right is a pattern coin of wartime Croatia, from which the modern design is clearly taken.
