2016 Vatican 2 Euro St. Martin of Tours

2016 Vatican 2 Euro St. Martin of Tours Photo

The 2016 Vatican 2 Euro dedicated to the Holy Year of Mercy depicts Saint Martin of Tours, a soldier of the Roman Imperial Guard, cutting his cloak and giving it to a man in the cold. The depiction is tied to classical iconography and an ideal representation of one of the Seven Corporal Works of Mercy, to clothe the naked, recalling the words of Jesus, "I was naked and you gave me clothing."
