The Latvian 1922 50 Santimu shows a large part of a rudder....but certainly not entire.

There are several anchors on coins, but how about rudders? Italy, 5 lire.

Oman, 1978, ½ rial, FAO.  The only lemon on a coin?

A human pie.....hummmmm....In spite of what you may think, I do not know of a specific instance where a human was made into a pie. Considering the long history of the human race and the colorfulness of it  ::)
 I think the likelyhood of that having already been done is approaching 100%.

Therefore, your new rule is REJECTED as lacking uniqueness and must be moved in the rejection topic forthwith!  ;D

Not quite a human pie - but to prove it has been thought of - remember Sweeney Todd... and an alleged historical basis!

Also, there is surely no Degenia on any coin besides 50 lipa, it's the sole species of the genus, lives on 3 places, each several hundred square meters area.

I wasn't expecting people to introduce botany, as no doubt there are lots of unique plants and flowers on coins, but I'm reluctantly accepting it. I am, however, keeping you under surveillance, Natko.  :o

 :D Lemon is tough though...Tobacco on Guarani, indeed, always connected it with guarana somehow.

BTW, I was referring to the amphora under the owl, not the owl itself. Of course, owl is quite common.

So, getting tricky now, Mr Natko? ;D

Guess I'll have to move my amphora to the rejections, too, now. :'(

Morocco, 5 dirham, 1975.  World Food Day.  Which other coin portrays a sugar beet?  :D

From my collection:

A Salzburg 1519 1-Zweier of Leonard von Keutschach
(uniface)
undeterminate Silver content (likely low)
about 16.5mm

Turnip, lower right above the 9.  Thanks Peter!

Nice! As a Northern Englishman, I know exactly what a turnip is, but here in London, the natives do not. They always call it a swede. If you ask for a turnip, they get confused and ask if you mean a parsnip.  ;D
