In Monaco, Friars Minor on the 5-cent coin
The principality has engraved its coat of arms on the 5-cent coins. The coat of arms is held by two bearded Franciscans (Friars Minor), each carrying a raised sword. The coat of arms symbolizes the conquest of Monaco in 1297 by François Grimaldi and his companions disguised as monks. The motto of Monaco is that of the Grimaldi family: "Deo Juvante," "With the help of God."
