Denmark, 5 kroner, 1998.

Art in Scandinavia: In Norway they have Edvard Munch. In Sweden - well, er, IKEA. In Denmark - nobody and nothing. So those Danes think a cheesy, kitschy, heart is a great work of art.  ::)

Malta, 5 mils, 1972.





Malta, 10 cents, 1976.

Am I pushing the envelope too far here? These dolphins appeared on the obverse of all Malta's coins (with the exception of the 25c coin) from 1972 to 1985.

Southern Rhodesia, half crown, 1937.

The reverse of this coin was designed by George Kruger-Gray. Just look at those startling objects at the bottom left and right. It's clear that the artist was dropping a huge hint that he'd seen a UFO.

Faroe Islands, 10 øre, 1941.  The rim device looks like a snowflake.

Slovakia, 10 korun, 1944.  Here we see some very unusual rim devices. If ever they had any special significance, it is probably lost in the mists of time.
