Usually the denomination appears on the reverse of a circulation coin.

Sometimes it appears on both sides:  Coins with the denomination on both sides.

Far less commonly, it appears on the obverse only.

Let's look at some sets with the denomination on the obverse only.

Obverse.





Reverse.

In 1976 Greece placed most of the denominations on the obverse only.






In the 1980s and 1990s, all the denominations appeared on the obverse only.

The obverse is seen on the right of these images.

It is the side that shows the country name.

Kenya's coins always showed the denomination on the obverse only.

The obverse was the side with the coat of arms and country name.

The presidential portraits appeared on the reverse.


In 2018 Kenya issued a new design series.

That series shows the denomination on the reverse only.

I believe that the current coins of Kuwait would fit this topic.

Probably there are other coins of Arab countries that would fit.
