Yeah, those latent images are hard to photograph, so a design study will actually show the details better. :)  Strictly speaking, what we have seen in this topic are different technologies. When the first latent images were used, they would show two views. The Dutch "geboortemunt" (2004) had three different angles; the Dutch Mint called that MultiView Minting. And the Luxembourgish coin in reply #4 uses what the KNM calls Minted Photo Image ...

In fact we already mentioned about some other similar coin who had a quadruple latent image, that is Spain 2012, 30 euros.

I mentioned that I attended the FNMT speech in WMF Media Forum. In NumismaticaVisual's Spanish blog they uploaded the video about this coin. You can see the quadruple latent image in minute 2:30 and 3:30.
Unfortunately, the video is in English.  ;D ;D ;D

Thanks for that, I just watched the video. Oh, and I noticed that the same YouTube user posted a few more Media Forum videos! http://www.youtube.com/user/vicepresidentADE?feature=watch

What I don't quite understand is ... the man who presents the program talks about this unique feature - but when the Dutch mint made its Muntgebouw coin last year, the designer Juanjo Sanchez (yet another guy from Spain talking in English :) ) mentioned how much time it had taken him to develop this six-"sided" latent image:

(here he shows the image) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_zhX3b9qMI

So what I think is new about this coin is not so much the fact that a latent image can show more than two "elements". This one is special in that the four latent images always show four different elements, which is probably not that easy to achieve ...

The latent images of two Chinese phrases, "the country is prosperous and at peace" and "the people live in safety and happiness", overlap to form the shape of a Ruyi. The face value 10 Yuan in Chinese is inscribed with two latent images inside the Arabic numeral "0", one of which shows the map of Taiwan.

You can read 2 different words and see 2 objects(Flower and map) if you see this coin in different angle!

Here is how KNM explains its gimmick. Grandma is on one side, seen here twice. The other side shows three portraits: parents and baby.

Great fotos! It is very difficult to capture latent images well. RMB = Ren Min Bi, people's money.
