Now that is interesting indeed: One of the most beautiful German coins (IMO) also shows a woman kneeling in a similar position: http://www.muenzauktion.com/wagnermichael/...d_50pf1950d.jpg


It is somewhat similar to a Swiss pattern (nickel) dated 1931, see the attachment*. And now I see another piece which is almost a duplicate of the Swiss design, but older than that ...

As I know, these patterns were struck at Huguenin Freres, Le Locle-Switzerland. In Romania they are very rare (more often I saw patterns on ebay than at romanian coin shows, where the prices are 3-4 times higher than on ebay).

Here is another picture of a Cu-Ni pattern of 5 lei 1922 (from transylvanian-numismatics forum: http://transylvanian-numismatics.com/phpBB...c.php?pic_id=42
