San Marino 200-LIRE (KM313) Bear
This FAO issue coin features the stonecutter and a bear.
The stonecutter theme refers to the original founder of San Marino, a stone mason named Marinus the Dalmation. According to tradition, he moved to the highest of the seven hills in 301 CE to escape persecution, and the settlement grew from there.
I do not know the significance of the bear, but Marinus' first abode was a cave. Looking at the image, the bear is either a pet, or a rug.
