Mexico, 8 escudos, 1838.  Gold.  Another hat on a stick: a liberty cap. Or is it a homemade bookmark?

Holland, 2 gulden, 1681.  A hat on a stick. Or is it a hat stand?

That is the Liberty Pole - a lance with the cap of liberty. See here (English), and also there (Dutch) for example ...

Malaysia, King’s crown, 2017

Actually I’m trying to find a hijab woman on coin, but couldn’t find one.

That is an interesting observation by itself.
