Looking at the Tongan 1981 design series, you will see that, apart from the non-standard 1 and 2 pa'anga coins (which were issued only in 1981), all the standard reverse designs show fruit, plants, vegetables.

By contrast, the 1975 set does not count, since it has only four plant designs, of which two are obverse designs and two are reverse designs.

You will know that Cabo Verde (Cape Verde) issued floral designs in 1994. However, the 1 cent coin showed a turtle - not a flower. So, that set does not meet the criteria for this topic.
