I think the 1928 Sesquicentennial of Hawaii's (European) Discovery half dollar works for the theme.

The coin's obverse presents a left-facing profile of Captain James Cook (w/o his ship) along with a very small compass that is shown pointing north. At the border on the obverse is a series of small curves meant to symbolize waves on the sea.

The reverse design includes a scene depicting King Kamehameha I in the foreground atop a hill and under a coconut tree with the waters of the Pacific Ocean rolling up onto the sands of Waikiki Beach in the background - no ships in sight!

@Dorado: Your Italian Naval League coin has an attractive design, and worthy of a CCF post - thanks for sharing it!

I don't think it works, however, for this thread and the "Ships on Coins" thread at the same time. The two threads are meant to focus on different themes - one that includes ships in the design, one that doesn't - a coin has to be one or the other. On this coin, the sailing ship is a rather prominent element within the design and so is a better fit for the "Coins with Ships" thread where you also posted it.

Just my opinion...

@Dorado: Do you think yourself clever by trying to insult me with a cartoon from 50 years ago?

It is not insult...It is just my opinion too.
