Description of obverse and reverse The obverse reproduces the portrait of Saint Teresa painted by Peter Paul Rubens, in which Saint Teresa is shown in the act of writing, inspired by the Holy Spirit. This canvas is housed in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. The reverse features the religious monument called El humilladero de Los Cuatro Postes (The Four Posts) located in Avila over the walled town. This is where the uncle of Teresa of Jesus found the saint and her brother Rodrigo when they were escaping to be martyred in Moorish lands.
A brief annotation The year 2015 marks the quincentenary of the birth of Saint Teresa of Avila (also known as Saint Teresa of Jesus). The founder of the feminine and masculine orders of the Discalced Carmelites, the patroness of Spanish writers, Saint Teresa of Avila participated, along with other greats of Spanish letters, in the literary renaissance that was Spain's "Golden Age". Saint Teresa of Jesus, also known as Teresa of Ávila, was a prominent Spanish mystic, Roman Catholic saint and Carmelite nun, an author of the Counter Reformation and theologian of completive life through mental prayer. In 1622, forty years after her death, she was canonized by Pope Gregory XV and on 27 September 1970, was named a Doctor of the Church by Pope Paul VI.
