In the state of San Marino, the portrait of St. Marinus of Rimini on the 20-cent coins
The coin shows a portrait of San Marino, based on a painting by Guercino (17th century). At the time of the persecutions ordered by the emperor Diocletian, Marino, attracted to Mount Titano, which he saw from Rimini, took refuge on the summit to become a hermit. The mountain was offered to him by a princess whose children he had healed. He is considered the founder of the micro state of San Marino.
