Wow this was a fun one @tdz. Great idea for a CCF compendium thread!

I think YOU were the one who suggested it!
I sure enjoyed hosting it, and some of the contributions made me aware of possible future additions (ALWAYS a problem with CCF!).

Yes, I think @january1may got us off of "Western" (Roman) saints, and added some who are honored in the Eastern church.

Saint Henry, on the other hand, is about as "Roman" as you can get. Holy Roman Emperor Henry II was the last emperor in the Ottonian line, ruling as King of Germany from 1002, and then Holy Roman Emperor 1014-1024. He was both a pious Christian, and an avid promoter of the power of Christian clerics as a counter to the power of the German nobility. He founded the bishopric of Bamberg in 1007, and was canonized as Saint Henry about a century after his death, in 1147.
He is thus one of the very few saints who have both issued coins as sovereigns. and later appeared on coins as patron saints (St. Ladislas of Hungary is another who comes to mind). Henry appears on coins of the Bishopric of Bamberg (typically the batzen = 4 kreuzer) in the 17th and 18th centuries, and a coin with his image was noted on an older CCF thread http://goccf.com/t/103798&SearchTerms=Bamberg

Here is a 1698 batzen:

Wow!
Thanks for those fantastic adds, @wcg. Looks like Sede Vacante types are a specialty of yours?

On the Bamberg coin, I am guessing this is maybe a "twofer" with Saint (Emperor) Henry in the first photo, with what is unmistakably a view from the east of Bamberg cathedral behind him:

Thanks @tdziemia! There were some fascinating designs that I had never seen before in this thread. I've had a weakness for the sede vacante pieces from German and Austrian States for some time now. The design, historical aspect, and simple thrill of the hunt is all part of the allure.
