Yes, the broken chain was added after WW2....When Austria was part of Nazi Germany, it used the eagle with the swastika. After WW2, when Austria became independent again, it added the broken chain....

From an unusually frank series of Austrian semi-postals sold during the early postwar, some similar imagery....

The "funny" thing about those Austrian anti-nazi stamps is that the Allied Occupation authorities did not allow all of them. This SS style lightning had to be replaced; the stamp (see attachment) could not be issued ...

Here is a piece from Norway (2003) that commemorates the independence centennial. The kingdoms of Norway and Sweden had a personal union; the Swedish king also ruled in Norway. That ended in 1905, and Norway issued six collector coins between 2003 and 2005 on that occasion.

A powerful image to plea for independence after the Nazi invasion of the Sudetenland (Czechoslovakia), I believe this medal was sold at the New York World fair.

Luxembourg, 175 years of "independence". The coin refers to the treaty of London of 1839 which did mention Luxembourg's independence but did not create it, as it was already independent, albeit under a personal union with the Netherlands. The treaty did transfer half of Luxembourg to Belgium, something hardly worth celebrating. One suspects Luxembourg was rather desperate for an occasion to issue a commemorative.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

I think, it is the sales guys of the mints, who aggressively coax minor states to issue (now) two commem coins quota to full extent.
Many times, they have no historical occasion but economic reasons will compel them. Proposing issue of a coin to commem 50th ann. of JF Kennedy's assassination by a minor country was the last straw which forced EU to reject such frivolous issue.

Not strictly a coin but it might be of interest, this celebrates the day Maharashtra State split from Bombay in 1960 so perhaps can be considered a type of independance  ;D
