Slovakia, 2 koruna coin.  The Venus of Hradok.

Nitriansky Hrádok is a district of a town of Šurany, Slovakia.  A famous find was a neolithic figurine of a sitting woman, which was dubbed the Venus of Hradok. "Venus" is an umbrella term used in archaeology for objects of this type. In 1997 a statue by Jaroslav Gubric was erected at Hradok, an enlarged copy of the figurine.

Perhaps the Singapore dollar of the new 2013 series is meant to represent the Merlion statue?
