Wow! Great contributions! I don't think I've seen those out here before. I like the evolution from the stylized,Gothic representation to the the more realistic image a century later.

From googly-eyed alien to sword-wielding astronaut, here is St. Paul's final form: Christian soldier. I've got a couple more examples from Muester--these are 18th Century though.

1714 AD:

Super! That closes the loop, as the 1714 4 pfennig is the same type @pepactonius posted on Monday.

The book is easy to understand as a symbol for St. Paul. According to some sources, the sword is related to the means of his martyrdom (beheading).

Maybe we will see more of him next week with P for Papal States?

I'll start P - S with a coin I joked about earlier, my only St. Gaudens this 13-14th undated grosso of the Italian city-state Rimini with an image of that city's first bishop, Saint Gaudentius.

My biggest contributions this week will be St George and the dragon, on the Russian Empire coat of arms. However, let's start with Ragusa and St. Blaise (and Jesus):

Republic of Ragusa -- 1 perpero, 1709:



Are we doing "S" this week (Salzburg and South Africa, for me)? The original schedule had P Q R this weeek?

Very nice Ragusa coin! I think Sweden also has this Salvator Mundi image of Jesus (which we saw from @t360 on some gorgeous thalers on the last How Far Back thread).

YES on S. I figured since Q would likely be a no-show (though maybe @spence has Quedlinburg) we would go thru S this week. Makes for two remaining chunks of the alphabet (T-U-V, then W-Z).
I think this could be a big week, with Papal States, Salzburg, and Russia (which I completely forgot).

This may be my most unusual contribution, though not an especially beautiful coin, a 2 tanga of Portuguese India (1640-41) with an image of St. Philip.

This coin is just a little more modern then all the ones posted. But I think it works.

1972 San Marino
50 Lire St. Marinus

Looks like I've got a little something to post each day this week, although sadly nothing from Quedlinburg. To get started, here are a couple Grosettos from Ragusa--one 16th Century and one 17th Century. Both include St. Blaise, but the older coin seems to also include an image of Jesus (hard to tell on the younger coin, but perhaps that is Him there too).

1514-1533:



1686:

Absolutely! And good to see you here @Keith.

If it's the figure in the 3d photo with SALVS TVTA in the legend like pepactonius' coin, I think it's a good bet it is Jesus again. I had Ragusa on my radar screen for St. Blaise, but having religious images on both sides means it goes higher on the list.

For anyone who grew up Catholic way-back-when, St. Blaise's feast day was marked by the blessing of throats (related to a miracle he performed). As I had recurrent sore throats as a kid, my mom made sure I NEVER missed that event.

Since we've had a few Ragusa coins with images of Jesus, here is another, this 1577 1 grosz coin from the siege of Gdansk. Collectors from the Germanic world would put this under D for Danzig, but since I am a collector of Poland, it goes here, as Poland, Gdansk mint

Nice one @tdz!

Here are a couple very similar 13th Century coins of the German City State of Regensburg. The striking process is a bit rough, but I believe that is St. Peter on the reverse.

The other option is this guy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolfg...f_Regensburg
Though the iconography isn't always consistent, Peter is usually shown as bald and bearded (your coins from Koln and Mainz), and the saints shown with mitre and crozier are often a local medieval bishop like your Willehad of Bremen, my Bernward of Hildesheim, and the parade of St. Ruperts (Salzburg) we will see the next few days. I still need to photograph my 16th c. Regensburg coin
