Both show the city arms. Those of Danzig/Gdansk are on its coins also. The city crown on the Sopot arms probably means it is post 1989, as communist era arms generally avoid crowns.

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

Sunset in Prague... a bit different from Malji’s manhole cover of December 27, 2015.

A great collection there at the above link.

I am surprised no PC people have queried it should be a person hole.

The late Rachael Heyhoe Flint was Captain of England's women's cricket team, unbeaten in six test series. A popular and entertaining raconteur she was popular on TV chat shows, and it was allegedly on one of these that the question was raised; do lady cricketers wear any protective device similar to the "box" worn by men.

"Absolutely" she replied, "only we call it a man hole cover"
