On the Belgium commemorative issue for the 150th anniversary of independence the map of Belgium appears twice: on the obverse it is composed by arranging the busts of the kings until 1980, on the reverse it is shown as it is.

Four different coins of Ukraine. Actually, they had no chance to appear in circulation (only 2 hryvnias 2001 could, but the possibility is extremely small).

Austria 5 euro 2004. A coin with a map that shows very clear the enlargement of the European Union in 2004.

Belgium 500 francs 2001 (in Latin) commemorates the Belgian Presidency of the E. U.
The obverse shows the map of the E. U. at that time, while the reverse shows Europa riding a bull over the map of Belgium.

Which reminds me, most euro collector coins from Belgium have a map of the European Union on the obverse ...

Two small gold coins from Luxembourg. They are from the "Art and Culture" series that started in 2004. The first one shows the Hellange Mask in the "shape" of the country's map. The second one uses the map as a background for Reynard/Rénert the Fox. Images: BCL.
