@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?

The 1936 Rhode Island Tercentenary half dollar was issued to mark the 300th anniversary of the founding of Providence, RI and was sponsored by the Providence Tercentenary Committee.

The obverse of the coin depicts Roger Williams, the Providence colony's founder, standing in a canoe as he comes ashore at the mouth of the Moshassuck River. It is the reverse design of the coin, however, that qualifies it for inclusion here.

The reverse of the Rhode Island half dollar features a reasonably faithful rendition of the Seal of the State of Rhode Island. The Seal is dominated by a large, standalone anchor at its center. This design element ties together the nautical themes on each side of the coin.

The coin was designed by Newport, RI artists John Benson and Arthur Carey.

The 2005 US Marine Corps 230th Anniversary commemorative silver dollar incorporates a fouled anchor on its reverse design.

The coin's reverse presents the official "Eagle, Globe and Anchor" emblem of the United States Marine Corps; the emblem has been in place since 1868. A prominent component of the emblem is the ship's anchor that lies behind the other elements. Per the United States Marine Corps web site: "The fouled Anchor, whose origin dates back to the founding of the Marine Corps in 1775, represents the amphibious nature of the Marines' duties and emphasizes the close ties between the Marine Corps and the U.S. Navy."

The emblem was adapted for the coin's design by Charles L. Vickers ("CLV").

The obverse of the coin depicts the famous flag raising scene atop Mount ­Suribachi on Iwo Jima as captured by Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal on February 23, 1945. The US Mint's Norman E. Nesmith ("NEN" created the design based on the Rosenthal photograph.
