East Caribbean States, 10 dollars, 1981.  Royal Wedding of Charles and Diana.



This next one is slightly off-topic. In order to commemorate the wedding of Charles and Diana, the East Caribbean States (or Territories) simply added "ROYAL WEDDING" to the legend and placed a map of the islands next to the usual ship. Nowadays, you might look at the legend and wonder "WHOSE wedding?". Nor does the altered design relate to the commemorated theme.

Compare it with the regular dollar design, below.

FWIW, the ship is a galleon, so it may well be the "Golden Hind", which has no connection with any royal wedding either. Queen Elizabeth obviously liked him, but she didn't marry him.

The ship certainly is intended to be Sir Francis Drake's "Golden Hind". See: Galleons.

The commemorate set for the 125th anniversary of Canadian federation should fit the bill for this theme. Perhaps the Queens golden jubilee as well

The US Mint started issuing the Kennedy half dollar as a circulation coin in 1964. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the piece (still issued regularly but does not really occur in circulation), it made three special products in 2014. The gold coin uses the regular design but has both dates (1964 2014); the other pieces are simply dated 2014 but have the higher relief of the original JFK half. Links and/or images:

Seychelles, 1 cent, 1976.

In 1976 the Seychelles issued its first full coinage as an independent country. The legend on  the reverse of all the coins was: "INDEPENDENCE 1976".





Here you see the Seychelles 1 cent of 1977. 

The word INDEPENDENCE has been removed.

Seychelles, 5 cents, 1976.  INDEPENDENCE.





Seychelles, 5 cents, 1977.  PRODUCE MORE FOOD.

The design was amended in 1977 to carry a FAO slogan.

Seychelles, 25 cents, 1977.  "INDEPENDENCE" has been removed from the legend.





Robert Elderton of the Royal Mint amended the design slightly for 1982, in order to move the parrot higher up the coin and remove the blank space.
