Description of obverse and reverse The obverse features a portrayal of the work "Susanna and the Elders" painted by Peter Paul Rubens. This work is housed in the Museum of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, in Madrid. The reverse renders the theme of the painting "Saint Augustine between Christ and the Virgin" by Peter Paul Rubens. This canvas is housed in the Museum of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, in Madrid. The Saint is depicted wearing the robe of his monastic rule, and the mitre and the ceremonial staff as Bishop of Hippo Regius (modern-day Annaba, Algeria). He kneels down on some volumes, alluding to the fact of being one of the most prolific Latin authors in terms of surviving works.
A brief annotation The story of Susanna and her slanderers, included in the Book of Daniel, inspires this painting by Rubens. Susanna is falsely accused by lecherous voyeurs, as she bathes in her garden. The two lustful elders threaten her to claim that she was meeting a young lover in the garden unless she agrees to have sex with them. She refuses to be blackmailed and is about to be put to death for promiscuity when a young man, named Daniel, interrupts the proceedings, shouting that the elders should be questioned to prevent the death of an innocent. The false accusers are put to death, and virtue triumphs.
