The subject of this coin is Adam naming the animals, with four representatives from land, air, and sea. It was minted in 1988, during the reign of John Paul II.

The thing I find the most intriguing about this coin is the depiction of Adam. Tell me he doesn't look like a shambling zombie! Perhaps you are not meant to look that closely at the image.
