Only slightly off-topic, since there are no saints on this design. The theme of a model church being held also appears on this Slovakian 10 korun of 1944.

Here is a German 10 Mark coin of 2000, showing Emperor Karl/Charles the Great holding a model of a church.

Here is another one from Austria - a €10 collector coin (contrary to what Wikipedia says, this is not a "commemorative coin") dedicated to Nonnberg Abbey: Saint Erentrude - Wikipedia
