The Evangelists: Saint John This year’s 100 euro gold coin is dedicated to Saint John the Evangelist. Based on a design by artist Cristina De Giorgi, the coin features the Saint with an eagle, given the belief that an eagle could look directly into the sun, so he also with his gospel gazed into the profoundness of the divinity of Christ. The scene shows one of the four ceramics by Andrea Della Robbia, depicting the Evangelists, adorning the pendentives of the dome of the Basilica of Santa Maria delle Carceri in Prato, Italy.
