Syria 50 piastres 1947.jpg

Syria, 50 piastres, 1947. 

I don't know what it represents, but it looks quite impressive.

It reminds me of those old organs they played in cinemas.

Some modern Dutch coins also focus on various geometric patterns. The gulden and cent circulation pieces "played" with lines, squares and rectangles. These photos (5 ct to 2.5 G) are from geldmuseum.nl; the actual coins do not have the same size of course. The tiny photo in the second image shows the sizes. On other side of each coin there is Queen Beatrix - see the 5 gulden piece.

Aruba is an autonomous part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

It picked triangle patterns for the four "cent" denominations.

This Portuguese 5 escudos of 1999 carries an intriguing pattern.

Does it signify anything?

My first thought on this one was a snowflake but looking closer it isn't hexagonal so it is some other pattern.

The Tajikistan 2011 set has 5 coins but just two patterns.

The same pattern appears on the 5, 10, 20 and 50 dirhams.

The 1 somoni design shows a different one.
