Japan 1000 Yen (2012): Oita Prefecture. Perhaps the only coin showing a Sumo Wrestler?

From Japan Mint's website:

Obverse:

Futabayama: Born in Usa, Ōita (1912∼1968). He was the 35th yokozuna, the highest rank in sumō wrestling. He achieved 69 consecutive victories from 1936 to 1939, which has been the record for more than 70 years. In 1946, at the age of 34, he retired and assumed the sumō elder's name of Tokitsukaze as a sumō coach. Later, he became a chairman of the Japan Sumō Association and made a great contribution to the development of sumō world.

I hope so.  ::)  Ugly sumo, ugly coloured coin. At least he's facing the front, otherwise we would have had to put it in the "Horses, donkeys and asses" topic.  :-X

Hungary 5000 Forint (2012): József Reményi

Perhaps the only coin commemorating a coin designer? József Reményi designed the first fillér coins (post WW II)..

Aditya

I don't think that this is the only one. In 1981 Czechoslovakia issued a commemorative 100 koruna coin dedicated to Otakar Spaniel, who designed most of the early Czechoslovak coins.

By the way, Remenyi also designed several pengö coins of pre-war Hungary.

spade and hoe

If you mean both together, you are twisting the rules, and I'm not accepting it.  :o

A hoe is common enough, though.





Now we just need to find a spade.
