The Lebanese are fond of their cedar trees. Here's a superb design from a 1929 50 piastres.

A nice German oak tree from 1929 now, on the 5 Reichsmark coin.
Title: Re: Trees on coins
Post by: Figleaf on March 03, 2011, 07:10:52 PM
Just like the Germans are fond of their forests. The oak tree, symbol of strength and power and for many centuries raw material for everything sturdy, from furniture to ships.

This coin illustrates a tree problem: trees are big. If you look at them from some distance, you can't see which tree it is and if you move closer, you lose part of the tree. I think that explains why the leaves are out of proportion.

Interesting detail: the legend EINIGKEIT UND RECHT UND FREIHEIT (unity and justice and freedom) is taken from the third stanza of the German national anthem (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutschlandlied). After the second world war, the first stanza was thought to be too nationalistic. However, this coin precedes that decision...

Yes, it is the third verse of the "Lied der Deutschen". But this third verse only is the German national anthem. In the German Empire that was different. But even in the Weimar Republic, pretty much every 3 or 5 RM coin had that motto, either on one side (as here) or on the edge.

Another interesting detail is the twigs. See how some do not have any leaves? The designer Maximilian Dasio apparently did that on purpose; for him those twigs represented the territories that were "lost" after WW1.

I had never seen this beautiful Prince Edward Island cent until today. Who knows which species of trees are depicted on it?

In 1769 St. John's Island, became a separate colony and received a great seal bearing a representation of a large oak spreading over three saplings. Underneath, the inscription, parva sub ingenti, (the small under the protection of the great) referring to the island being under the protection of the Great Britain. The three saplings are now regarded as representing the three counties of Kings, Queens, and Prince, and the oak, Prince Edward Island, as it was renamed in 1799.

Costa Rica, 10 colones, 1975. 

Enterolobium cyclocarpum, commonly known as the guanacaste or the elephant ear tree, is a species of flowering tree in the pea family, Fabaceae. The abundance of this tree, especially in Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica where it is prized for the shady relief that it provides from the intense sun, coupled with its immensity, have made it a widely recognized species. It is the national tree of Costa Rica.
