Also in West Frisia (Friesland) the Moneyer Jan Knol used a turnip as his mintmark about early mid 1700's. That might be cheating a little as it isn't part of the main design.
I like turnips...just not often and not in massive doses  ;D

Perhaps the only coin showing a stethoscope? :)

While I still do not like colored coins ;) the idea behind "emphasizing" certain characters here is a nice one. "As a token of gratitude, the names of children inscribed on the coin spell the word "kiitos", "thank you" in Finnish." (Source)

So far I haven't been able to find another coin depicting a stethoscope.  :o

Here is a coin depicting sloths - the only such coin in the world so far?

Congo DR, 10 francs, 2010.

Only bimetallic coin showing another bimetallic coin on it? (5 Rand 2009, Nelson Mandela)

Quite possibly, but I can go one better: the only bimetallic coin, represented in bimetal, on a coin (albeit a monometallic one):

Pakistan, 100 rupees, 1977. Birth Anniversary of Allama Iqbal.

Are there any other coins where the subject has his/her eyes closed?

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