I defy you to find another coin that uses electric pylons as its subject. The Mozambique 5000 Meticais of 1998 does exactly that. Not, you would think, a particularly promising subject, but the artist (unknown as yet!) could scarcely have made a better job of it.

The Saarland coins issued in the early/mid 1950s featured industrial architecture. When we think of heavy industry in Saarland today, the "Völklinger Hütte" (former iron works in Völklingen, SL) which is part of Unesco's World Heritage comes to mind. What is depicted on these coins is more abstract though.

Industrial infrastructure can also be found on the €10 collector coins from 2003 (Ruhrgebiet) http://www.honscha.de/bilder/10d031g.jpg (http://www.honscha.de/bilder/10d031g.jpg) and 2007 (50 years ago Saarland had joined the Federal Republic of Germany) http://www.deutsche-sammlermuenzen.de/bmf/art/shop/gedenkmuenzen/910029SG_gr.jpg (http://www.deutsche-sammlermuenzen.de/bmf/art/shop/gedenkmuenzen/910029SG_gr.jpg).

This 25 markkaa coin from Finland was issued in 1997 to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the country's independence. By and large I like Finnish coin designs, but I wonder what that thing in the upper left quarter of the reverse is ...
