Here and there on CCF I have posted coins that fit a collecting theme of mine, which is coins with images of saints. It was pointed out recently that LOTS of CCF contributors have world coins that fit this theme, so this thread is meant to provide an opportunity to show them all in one place, organized by name of the issuing country/state/city.

So let's see them!
We'll start with place names beginning with the letters A to C, which I hope might bring out some Canadian coppers with Saint George, maybe a gold sovereign from Australia, and lots of German and Italian states (Bavarian madonnas? Bohemia? Ancona? Bologna?). All of these places, and more in the first three letters of the alphabet, minted coins that feature an image of a saint.

Here's a tentative timeline:
A to C Feb. 18 - 29
D to F March 1 - 7
G to I March 8 - 14
J to L March 15 - 21
M to O March 22 - 28
P to R March 29 - April 4
S to U April 5 - April 11
V to Z April 12 -

Each Sunday (memory permitting ) I will chime in and turn over to the next letters of the alphabet. If you're late to join, please feel free to add contributions for letters that we've passed, but try not to anticipate letters we've not yet reached.

I will start with this 1537 Braunschweig (Brunswick) Germany "Annegroschen", featuring the image of St. Anne on the reverse:

I think on the "Post Your German Coins" thread, I have seen other members' later coins from Brunswick-Luneburg-Calenberg with an image of St. Andrew, who is the patron saint of the city of Braunschweig. Here is a 1/3 thaler ... hope to see some more!

Thanks for the support, and what I think was a lot of effort to assemble that list!

For anyone who has coins from these places, you might also find in the letters A through C:
Brabant: St. Michael, At. Andrew, St. Peter, St. Philip
Bremen also has St. Peter
Berne: St. Vincent
Canada: St. George

If your collection includes German notgeld coins, you likely also have something to contribute!

Here is a notgeld coin from Bingen showing St. Martin of Tours. If you have a notgeld coin with a figure on it and you don't know who it might be, put it out here and we might be able to figure it out.

Thanks for joining in, @paralyse!

I was hoping to see some of those Bavarian madonnas. That first one looks like a toned beauty!

Antwerp issued gold florins with St Philip on them. I haven't got one though! They could also go under B for Belgium.

Thanks for that splendid Australian sovereign to get us a St George! I was hoping we'd see one.
And happy to see this thread picking up some steam.

Well ... since you mentioned it @NumisRob ... I have this under B for Duchy of Brabant. Issued 1500-1506 under Duke Philip the Fair

I'm pretty deep in this theme for the letters A-B-C, so I'll post another one today. I think we will see St. Peter many times over the next few weeks, especially when we hit some of the other German city-states, then Papal States, and finally Vatican City. Here is my earliest, this early 14th century gros from the Duchy of Brabant:

Great! Certainly that 19th century British rendering of St. George is the most dramatic version in all of numismatics (as I recall, the engraver was an Italian who immigrated during the Napoleonic wars?).

Going a bit from the sublime to the ridiculous (in terms of visual appeal), here is a "two-fer," a Bohemian denar from the reign of Vladislav I (1120-25) featuring on the reverse Czech patron saints Adlabert (Bishop of Prague martyred in 997)and Wenceslas (Duke of Bohemia 922-935)
