This may be the oldest independence commemorative. The series consist of a 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 and 1 real 1812/aņo secundo de la Republica. The key is the 19 in the centre. This refers to the declaration of independence of 19th April 1810. In 1812, the first republic surrendered to Spain. Lasting independence was achieved only in 1821, after years of bloody warfare.

The parliament building in the background of the 10 rupees refers to the democratic values inherent in India's independence. It isn't always so. This circulating commemorative 40 shillings for 40 years of Kenyan independence shows the latest inept dictator.

The statue on the 50 Paisa coin shows the Dandi March yatra. The same was depicted on 500 rupee note also.

The Federal Republic of Germany issued two circulating 2 DM coins in 1969 which commemorated the 20th anniversary of the country's existence or independence. Below is the one that shows the first chancellor Konrad Adenauer; the other one shows the first president Theodor Heuss.

Similar 2 DM coins are about the 30th (Kurt Schumacher), 40th (Franz Josef Strauß) and 45th (Willy Brandt) anniversary of the country. The silver coins (5 DM - 25 yrs 1974, 10 DM - 50 yrs 1999) focus on the constitution instead.

The Netherlands will apparently issue a series of coins dedicated to 200 years of the Kingdom. Designs are not known yet, I think.

"In de jaren 2013 - 2015 bestaat ons Koninkrijk 200 jaar. Dit gaan we vieren! In de jaren 1813 - 1815 is het fundament gelegd voor het land dat we in de 200 jaar daarna hebben opgebouwd: Nederland werd een Koninkrijk, met een Grondwet, een Eerste en een Tweede Kamer en een positie op het internationale toneel. Om dit te eren brengt de Koninklijke Nederlandse Munt al vanaf 2012 een mooie serie uit rondom dit thema." http://www.knm.nl/200-jaar-Koninkrijk-der-Nederlanden/nl/news/289/?NieuwsGroepID=1&NWSY=2011&NWSM=12
