Beautiful! I expect when we get to G for Great Britain we will see more of St. George.

Here is a cornuto form the Italian city-state of Carmagnola, near Turin. The saint on horseback is Saint Constantius, which legend holds was a soldier in the Theban Legion, some (or all) of whom were put to death near today's St. Moritz Switzerland in 286 a.d.

Thanks for those great adds @pepactonius. I will add one more St. Andrew, the undated Brabant florin shown below, 1467-1477 with a more 2-dimensional portrayal of the saint.

And ... a call for a medieval Ancona coin, which I know at least a couple of CCF members have, with a portrait of a saint we haven't seen yet

Bavaria is still on my want list. I've only got teeny madonnas on a couple of Hungarian denars.

Here is St. Vincent on 1 dicken coin from Berne, Switzerland

Another nice St. Andrew. I get confused by which Brunswick- has the wildman, which has St Andrew, and which overlap with both.

My last Brabant contribution is this double esterlin with the Archangel Michael. Saint Michael and Saint Gudula are the patron saints of the city of Brussels. I know that another CCF member has a token with an image of Saint Gudula, so maybe that will show soon!

I am looking forward to seeing that Ancona medieval ... both a place and saint we haven't seen yet. Might you also have an early mariengroschen with a madonna? Enquiring minds want to know
And, grateful to @pepactonius for the steady stream of contributions!

I've got two left for A-B-C, and nowhere near as many for D-E-F. Here is Saint Peter enthroned (and rather worn down) on a Bremen coin:

My last contribution for the beginning of the alphabet is this 15th century 1/2 batzen from Constance with an image of St. Conrad. I will post a summary later of the (appreciable!) prgoress in the first 3 letters of the alphabet.

Ok for the letter A, I have three coins:

1. 1419-dated Groschen from Aachen (Charlemagne)
2. 1420-dated Groschen from Aschen (Charlemagne)
3. 13th Century Denaro from Arezzo (St. Donatus)

Talk about clutch! We're in the bottom of the ninth here for A to C, so great help from yours and @pepactonius' contributions

(BTW, there are more dates of early Aaachen coins up for auction right now)

Thanks to all who contributed to the first slice of the alphabet! I think the options will be fewer for D-E-F depending on whether we call UK coins from the 19th century England or Great Britain. But before getting ahead of myself, here's where we are already after the first 3 letters:

Compendium of Saints by Place Name
Aachen - Charlemagne (2)
Andorra - Charlemagne
Arezzo - St. Donato
Australia - St. George (2)
Bavaria - Mary as Madonna (6)
Berne - St. Vincent
Bingen - St. Martin of Tours
Bohemia - St Adalbert and St. Wenceslas
Brabant - St. Andrew, St. Michael, St. Peter, St. Philip
Bremen - St Peter, St. Willehad
Brunswick (city) - St. Anne
Brunswick-Lunenburg-Calenberg - St. Andrew
Brunswick-Luneburg-Calenberg-Hanover - St. Andrew (3)
Canada - St. George (2)
Carmagnola - St. Constanmtius

If we organize the list by saints' name:

Anne - Brunswick
Charlemagne (3) - Aachen (2), Andorra
Conrad- Constance
Constantius - Carmagnola

Eligius
George (5) - Australia, Canada
Martin - Bingen
Mary as Madonna (6) - Bavaria
Michael - Brabant
Peter (2) - Brabant, Bremen
Philip - Brabant
