Chess on coins

See Reply#1 for some books that may shield your head when it's stuck above the parapet.

Of course, there are plenty of pseudo coins on the chess theme. Here are a few. I like that Hungarian piece...

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

Many thanks for this; I was aware of most of these, but not the Novi Sad one -
I have a lot of memorabilia as a school team mate represented the Irish ladies team there (I did a few training sessions with her to prepare her for it) and she brought me back a lot of memorabilia, but not the coin!  That one will head to the top of my wish list!!

I have a circulated example of the UAE chess coin somewhere, but of course that doesn't mean they were meant for circulation - Anyone know for definate?

AFAIK that one circulated. The only one among the issues I showed.
