San Marino 1000 1997 lire. White Statue of Liberty

The same lady can also be found on San Marino's current 2 cent circulation coins. :)

Here is a pretty tall one. :)  The Gateway Arch in St. Louis, MO, US designed by Eero Saarinen. On the other side of the coin you see Saarinen's famous Tulip Chair by the way.

No monument in the world has figured on so many coins as the perron of Luik/Liège. Here it is on the central shield. The coin is an oord 1745 in the name of prince-bishop Johann-Theodor of Bavaria.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

I have shown the perron of Liège on a sturdy common coin, but I came across a picture of a wonderfully preserved patagon 1674 (vG H 1309) with a more detailed version (upper left quarter of the coat of arms.)

One of the increasing number of US issues with the same guy on both sides of the piece. The second head is the likeness of Mr. Jefferson.

The ruins of the Ishtar Gate in 1931.

The reverse of the Iraqi 5 fils of 1982 depicts a side view of the Ishar Gate. Ishtar was the Babylonian goddess of love and war.
