Description of obverse and reverse
The reverse of the coin presents an exceptionally detailed image of the Templars going on a crusade. The high relief perfectly highlights every detail. The sword of the monk from the foreground has been gilded. At the bottom of the coin the motto of the Knights Templar "Non nobis Domine, non nobis, sed nomini Tuo da gloriam!" is placed, which means "Not for us, My Lord, not for us, but to your Name give the glory". Next to it there is the motto of St Benedict of Nursia, "Ora et labora!", which means "Pray and work!".

The obverse of the coin features ornaments and swords associated with the Order.

A brief annotation
The Knights Templar, was a Catholic military order founded in 1119. The Knights Templar operated until 1312, when the order was indefinitely abolished by Pope Clement V. Wearing their distinctive white cloaks with a red cross, the Templars were one of the most skilled fighting units of the Crusades. The non-combatant members of the order managed a sizeable economic infrastructure throughout Christendom, developing innovative financial techniques that were an early form of banking and arguably creating the world's first multinational corporation.
