Three from the Federal Republic of Germany. The first coin is also the most famous one, as it is the first piece that the country issued. 5 DM 1952, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nürnberg. The image side shows a fibula from the 5th century, found in Domagnano, San Marino.

And a museum again: a 10 DM coin from 2001. The piece shows the Katharinenkloster in Stralsund, MV. This former monastery became a marine science and biology museum in 1951 (which has been expanded and got additional locations since then).

That building sure has an interesting history. Originally it was supposed to be a synagogue, but due to a lack of funds it has never been one. Later it became a movie museum (Museo Nazionale del Cinema). And in theory we could add many places depicted on coins where the building itself is a museum. But we won't do that here, right? ;D
