I believe there is a slovenian pre euro coin with a worm on it



Do you mean this? It's an olm - a blind salamander. Worms don't have hands and feet - at least not where I live.  ;)

Yes, I remember the Polish eels. However, they were on collector coins, while the Slovenian coin was a circulation piece.

Pretty sure Salamander isn't unique on coins

Russia, 1 ruble, 2006.  Took me a while to find it. You should always add that info, where you know it.

Somalia, 50 shillings, 1970.  10th anniversary of independence.

The only coin design to show incense?

There are several coins with Incense burners but not sure of any that actually show the smoke as well.

The ball point pen is not a unique theme.  A 1995 crown with the image of Lazlo Biro and some people using a ball point pen was issued by the Isle of Man as part of a series of coins celebrating the inventions of the modern world.

There is a Hungarian commemorative  coin as well. :) :)

Yes.  I was responding to that very coin of Hungary from a post on page one of this thread that claimed this as unique.  That is why I posted about the IOM coin.  The Hungary coin does not have a unique theme.
