This being a counterstamped coin is a different take on your theme, <k>, but I think it's an interesting example nevertheless.

I've had this 1918 Penny for sometime now. Apparently, it celebrates the end of the First World War, though there's possibly another meaning to it.

Not too obvious, but the word peace is below the eagle. There is an even more belligerent looking pseudo coin issue dated 2018 for the same occasion.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

The Peace Dollar had crossed my mind, Peter, but  I don't have any in my collection to show. Though the Peace and Morgan Dollars are attractive coins, I never had an interest in collecting them.

Mine came from the same source: a grand tour of the US by Greyhound bus, visiting every coin shop I saw. The coins were stolen a few years back. The picture was borrowed from a dealer ;)

In 2005 Germany issued a 10 collector coin that honored the 100th anniversary of Bertha von Suttner's Nobel Peace Prize. Image from Wikipedia ... yeah, I'm lazy. :)



But it is not so much the obverse or reverse that I find interesting in this context. The edge inscription says "peace" in three languages - EIPHNH PAX FRIEDEN (Greek, Latin, German) - two times. :)

Edge lettering is interesting, Christian, but something that people sometimes don't notice or even know about. As in the case of "Mr. Wikipedia's" coin :), it provides additional information related to the coin's theme.

I have several counterstamped coins with edge stamps applied. I'm not sure how that's done, but the method must be similar to that used to apply reeds to a production coin.
