Nearly all the coins in the modern South African series have an inner polygonal rim.



























10c.  Arum lily.                         
20c.  King Protea.                       
50c.  Stralitzia.                        
1R.    Springbok.                   
2R.    Head of greater kudu.   
5R.    Black wildebeest.

Portugal, 2.5 euros, 2013.  100th Anniversary of the first Portuguese submarine: Espadarte.

Most unusual. The inner rim is half scalloped and half round. Are there any other coins like this?

Syria, 5 pounds, 1996, featuring the Citadel of Aleppo. 

Nobody would mistake this for a true 5-sided coin, but I wonder if there are any others like it?

Singapore's Floral series $1 coin, 1986 design(original) and 1987-2013 design (though Coat of Arms was changed halfway)
You can see that the original design bore a polygonal rim only on the reverse side.
Sorry for the watermark. Anyone can find a better image for the 1986 coin?

Yes, it's a nice design.

You can see that the original design bore a polygonal rim only on the reverse side.

Below are some existing circulation coins with that feature. Does anybody know of any more?





Mexico, 10 centavos, 1992.





Egypt, 5 piastres, 1992.





Venezuela, 100 bolivares, 2001.

SPAIN: 500 pesetas coin 1987-2001

One of the highest face value minted as coin in the world (aprox.3,00)


SPAIN: 200 pesestas coin 1986-1988

This was an small coin in relation with his "high" face value, was even smaller than the previous minted coin of 100 pesetas. Was replaced by a higher size 200 pesetas coin in 1990.
