And Bulgaria has issued two collector coins with an equally odd denomination: 1.95583 leva. Which is exactly 1 euro, due to the fixed exchange rate. The first of that kind (Bulgaria as an EU "candidate") came out in 2005 , the other one (EU membership) is from 2007.

There were some interesting "dual denomination" types in the late 19th/early 20th centuries - 37.5 roubles springs to mind ...

Martin,
  Poland also had dual-denominated coins - 10 Roubles = 1-1/2 Zlotych when it was known as the 'Congress Kingdom of Poland',albeit,with the Czar of Russia as King of Poland.

Talking of Poland,Pabitra Saha has mentioned that Poland is putting out a commemorative 37 Zlotych medal-coin this year.

Cabinda (or Kabinda) has recently released a 7.5 Escudos coin (which is bimetallic I guess,not too sure).Of course,whether it should be considered as an independent  'country' or not is a matter of debate ;D
