Unavoidably, some are better than others, but the overall quality is world class. The intricacy of the interwoven symbols on the design of the "decade of women" is fantastic. Doesn't Aurélio deserve his own thread on te designers board?

Some coins that were designated as FAO issues carry no identifiable FAO slogan. Two examples of this are the current Guernsey penny and two pence coins; the higher denominations are not designated as FAO issues. I do not see the point of issuing FAO-designated issues that do not carry a FAO-related slogan.
 










I found this very rudimentary sketch in some old Royal Mint documents at the National Archives, London. It was meant for Guernsey and shows that originally the coins were meant to carry a slogan.  A cow design first appeared on the pre-decimal Guernsey threepence of 1956, then on the 10 pence first issued in 1968 (but not the 50 pence), and finally on the current 2 pence coin, first issued in 1985. Of these, only the 2 pence coin was designated as a FAO issue.

That sketch is wonderful. It explains the background of and original intentions for a well known type. Thank you!

I'm surprised to see that the eight identical Caribbean issued haven't been mentioned yet..

Here's the Barbados 4 Dollar (KM# A9) coin for example:


Other countries which issued 4 Dollar coins with same reverse design are: Antigua, Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, Saint Kitts, Saint Lucia and Saint Vincent.
