In Spain, the Church of Santiago of Compostela on 5-cent coins
Santiago of Compostela is the oldest European pilgrimage destination, the millennial path of Europe. The church of Santiago de Compostela was struck on no less than 4 billion 5-cent coins. It's dedicated to the Apostle James the Greater, son of Zebedee, patron saint of Spain. Legend has it that after his beheading, his followers took away his body and launched it on a ship that eventually landed in Galicia, near the site where the Church of St. James was built.
