Not the sun itself, but the Inca mask of the sun, on a 1991 50 sucres coin from Ecuador.

Georgia, common obverse of coinage, 1993.  This is apparently a symbol for the sun, and it appears over the "Christian tree of life".

And Oscar Roty's famous Sower (Semeuse), with the sun in the background, should be added as well. (Source)

The first Bulgarian post-communist coins of the 1990s all show a sun face (and a fish) on the reverse. Apparently the two symbols represent the "founding nations" of Bulgaria: the Slavs and the Thracians.
