Judging by the size of the fish, that is not a very impressive berg.

Could be the only "fully visible" iceberg on a coin, yes. But various Titanic 2012 issues (Canada, Fiji and the ever so prolific Cook Islands) have iceberg parts ...

Finland, 10 euros, 2013.   Eero Järnefelt.

That one is kind of iffy.
In 2009 Lithuania issued a 1 Litas coin that shows a Designation of Vilnius

It depicts an artist and his canvas/easel or is the easel a crenulated Castle?   ;D

It looks very weird, and I'm not sure what the symbolism is supposed to mean. I think my coin's "one-of-a-kind-ness" should stand, unless someone can find another realistic easel, as opposed to a symbolic halfway house.

It is a painter's easel.  However it is stylized heavy enough that you have to know it is. Not going to totally recognize it otherwise.

I don't know of any other painter coins that even show that much.  So maybe this one stands....for now...  ;)
