The ram was an actual prize-winning individual, with his own name, which eludes me unfortunately.

Though he's from New Zealand, it might have been Shrek

:D

Of course. If only to remind me that the original is one of the few holes in my Poland collection :(

Here's one:

Poland 2 Zloty (2009), commemorating 180th anniversary of Central Banking:



It shows a double denominated coin: 1-1/2 Rouble, 10 Zlotych, issued in Kingdom of Poland, then part of Russian empire.

Any more?

Another Polish 2 Zloty coin (2007) showing 5 Zloty of 1928.

Poland has actually issued quite a few of these "coins on coins". Here is one from Germany:



A larger/better image is here for example:

Thanks, Christian. That's quite a HUGE list of coins showing coins. Will be looking for some of these (especially Polish) but not now.  ;D

Belatedly, a couple of the images I promised in 2008.  The 1967 medal was designed by James Berry, who designed the original coins. The coins represented are at their full original size.

And the 1983 coin was designed by Philip Nathan. ~ coffeetime

Worth the wait. The proof effect is distracting, but otherwise, the coin sums it up quite nicely. Funny how the fact that all coins are pictured the same size doesn't bother me.
