Regarding turkey coins, the 2013 Native American dollar might have already been mentioned. If not, here it is in all its glory. I like it --- an unusual and visually interesting design!
I missed that one! Great coin. You know, at first I'd thought we might have found the only coin in the world with a turkey on it, but I should have known better. E-Sylum readers set me straight in spades. Neat topic!

The New Jersey Tercentenary medal of 1964 has a turkey representing the Unalachtigo sub-tribe of the Lenni Lenape, along with many other symbols of the state.
Better known is the turkey on the Washington Market Exchange civil war token, Fuld NY630CC.
If this keeps going there will soon be material for a book on the topic.

I've attached a list of 60 National Park medals that Medallic Art Co still sells (at parks and via their web site.
Check out the reverse of the Great Smokey Mt medal.
These medals were first issued in silver in 1972 as a limited edition of 36 medals. Medallic Art then added six more silver medals for a total of 42. Later they used the same dies to make bronze medals and added a number of additional parks for a total of 60. I have a complete sets in both Silver (42) and Bronze (60).
