1987 British pound coin with an Oak Tree:

This coin's reverse design was heavily criticized when it was released. It was one of four reverses, designed by Leslie Durbin, used in successive years for the four constituent countries of the United Kingdom - England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Each coin showed plants that are national symbols for their respective countries. The Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish coins showed a thistle, leek and flax plant respectively, all inside a coronet. The oak is a popular symbol for England, but many numismatists thought that it would have been better to have portrayed a bunch of twigs with acorns and oak leaves rather than cram an entire tree inside the coronet, which makes the design rather out of scale with the others...

Seeing mrwhatisit's Connecticut State Quarter from 2009 certainly triggers thoughts of the first time the Charter Oak appeared on a Federal US coin - the 1935 Connecticut Tercentenary half dollar.

The commemorative half dollar was issued to mark the 300th anniversary of the founding of the Colony of Connecticut. Though some historians point to 1632, 1633, 1634 or 1636 as founding years of Connecticut, due to early exploration of the area, the construction of forts and/or the founding of early settlements that led to present-day cities, the 1935 date was selected as the official tercentenary year.

The oak tree on the coin's obverse, formerly found in Hartford, CT, is the famous "Charter Oak." Legend has it that the Charter Oak was the hiding place for the colony's Royal Charter when an attempt was made by King James II (through his local administrator Sir Edmund Andros) to revoke it. The tree stood for centuries (it is believed the tree dated to at least the 12th century) before it was knocked down during a strong storm in 1856.

Here's a link to the story of the Charter Oak on the Connecticut History web site: The Legend of the Charter Oak

The half dollar's reverse features a standing eagle with 13 small stars (representing the original 13 colonies, of which Connecticut was one) just under "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" near the rim of the upper half of the coin.

The coin was designed by Henry Kreiss; Kreiss also designed the official Tercentenary Medal for Connecticut.

One of the most iconic of Canada's coin designs is Emmanuel Hahn's "Voyageur" reverse for the country's 1935 circulating silver dollar (and all subsequent silver and nickel dollar coins through 1987). The coin was launched in 1935 as a commemorative for the 25th anniversary ("Silver Jubilee") of King George V's ascension to the British throne.

Hahn's reverse design features a canoe being paddled by a voyageur and a First Nations male. A "voyageur" was a traveling agent for a fur trading company / fur transporter - in this case an agent of the Hudson's Bay Company (HBC); the figure is presented near the canoe's stern. The HBC logo can be seen on the canoe at its bow. In the background is an islet with a pair of small, wind-swept trees (they appear to be pine trees); the Northern Lights are seen in the sky above.

The coin's obverse present a left-facing portrait of King George V, encircled by a commemorative inscription that translates from Latin as "George V King Emperor 25th Year of Reign." The 1935 SD was Canada's first coin to feature a domestically-created design - Hahn's "Voyageur."
