San Marino 500-LIRE (KM153) Beasts of War
This subject of this "commemorative" coin is Nuclear War Threat. It was minted in 1983 only, and being a 21 year old at that time I can confirm that the threat was real and pervasive.
The three "beasts" raining hell-fire down on the hapless people look a little like horses, but it would not be fair to horses to call them that, so I am going with "Beasts of War" on this one. A creepy image, indeed, but fitting for the era.
