Hard to imagine we got this far into the alphabet without seeing such an important guy.
Here is St. Stephen on a 15th century gros/groschen of the City of Metz, which is now part of Lorraine, France, but in those days was a staunchly independent free imperial city of the Holy Roman Empire.

Thanks! I was waiting for a Mansfeld coin to appear!

Ferdinand I, King of Naples also liked warrior saints, but in his case, St. Michael on this undated (1488-94) coronato:

I'll follow up with another coin of Naples, from an earlier era, this undated Saluto d'Argento from the reign of Charles I of Anjou (1266-85) that shows a different Annunciation scene (Mary receiving news from the archangel Gabriel) from the one posted by @erafjel for France, and is nowhere near as beautiful.

@tdziemia, I am very happy with my salut d'or, but your saluto d'argento is beautiful, so well struck and with wonderful details!

Some more great coins in the past few days. For this week's crop of coin issuers, it looks like the ones that I have with saints are all beginning with the letter M. Here are a couple images of St. Peter from the German Archbishopric of Mainz:

1463-1475:




1493:

I can match that earlier one, but not the dated one:

And another St Paul from Munster, a bit later than @pepactonius' example, this 1762 6 pfennig coin. I like this iconography of Paul with a sword and a book.

Ok yes good I'll have several images of St. Peter on coins of Muenster, dating from the 13th through the 18th Centuries. The sword and bible *is* interesting iconography.

I expect we'll see even more of Peter, Paul and Mary when we get to P for Papal States next week, and eventually V for Vatican City.

I love those medieval Milan coins. On one side a saint giving a blessing, and on the other side a basilisk eating a child

Yes, the ol' carrot or stick approach, although even St. Ambrose seems to be holding a whip for self-scourging in addition to the more peaceful crozier. Lot's of dark imagery to be sure.

Speaking of dark imagery, I have a Batzen from the countship of Ottingen, same type @pepactonius posted earlier, just a different date (1521). A little hard to see, but St. Sebastian tied to a tree and shot with arrows:
