A boring design, maybe, but not a boring coin. How many countries have a triangular national symbol on their coins? How many mention the sub-continent on their coins? How many proclaim "in god we trust" from their coins?

There's at least one other I can think of.  ;)

I can think of a third one, but it is just quoting the one you have in mind. :)

As controversial innovation, it's on the edge of the coin. ;)

The Dutch version is usually "God zij met ons" (God be with us), which is different, though along similar lines. But I can't find a picture of this edge.

Neither could I, so in KM we trust and it says the edge inscription is: "IN GOD WE TRUST ST. EUSTATIUS
SALUTES FIRST AMERICAN FLAG"

Yes.
Zimbabwe set, coins for fractions of US Dollar, minted in China, coming in first week of December.

I am assuming that you agree with me that plastic stuff of Transnistria is a set of tokens.

Didn't know that. So it'll be like Panama and Timor Leste - they'll use the US dollar but their own coins.

Whatever they are, they're not coins - and probably not even tokens.

Here is the latest on that from Zimbabwe

Yes. It will be like Panama ( or even worse since Rand is also valid currency in Zimbabwe).

So far as I know, I have included all the worthwhile sets for 2016:

Major New Circulation Sets of the 21st Century - 2016.

Did I miss any? And which sets are eligible, so far, for 2017? I know of the Isle of Man set. Are there any others? Here is a reminder of my:

I did indeed. Probably because I was disappointed that there would be no more beautiful bird issues.  :(

Vatican City. You probably missed this because you were disappointed that there will no longer be a nice image of Pope Francis on the circulating coins.
