Description of obverse and reverse
The front bears a quote from St. Elizabeth of Hungary (“I SAY UNTO YOU, ONE MUST BRING JOY TO PEOPLE…”). The central motif of the back is a figure of the Saint standing under an arched gate, an image inspired by a painted wooden statue at the parish church of St. Elizabeth in Budapest. The scene alludes the two miracles of her: the miracle of roses and the miracle of the crucified Christ.
A brief annotation
Saint Elizabeth of Hungary – the patroness of wives, of young mothers, of the Third Order of St. Francis and of charitable work – was one of the most well-known and beloved saints in the Middle Ages. The legend of St. Elizabeth as a woman dedicated to helping the poor and active in a broader community was an example for her contemporaries and posterity. The coin honors her, as part of the collector coin series presenting the saints of the House of Árpád.
