The other heptagon in circulation in the UK is the 20 pence coin. Its surface is countersunk. Although other British-linked territories use heptagonal 20 pence coins, only the Isle of Man, Gibraltar, and St Helena and Ascension use countersunk planchets. Jersey, Guernsey, and the Falkland Islands use 20p coins without the countersunk feature. In the case of the Isle of Man, the issues prior to the year 1993 are NOT countersunk.

In 1997, Western Samoa changed its name to Samoa. It did this with the agreement of the Americans, who administer American Samoa. This is reflected on their coinage. On the first image, the legend says simply "SAMOA"; on the second image, it reads "SAMOA I SISIFO", meaning Western Samoa.

No X or Y as yet, but here, at the end of the alphabet, is a novelty collector coin from Zambia.
