    A couple of John Calvin medals (Protestant theologian). The reverse of the plaquette reportedly shows the view from a window at St. Peter's in Geneva.

    Side note: The coins from Spain (Santiago de Compostela) and Austria (St. Stephen's in Vienna) show existing buildings. The one in the middle is not a cathedral in the sense of a church building, and it was never built anyway. ;) The Katedrala Svobode (Freedom Cathedral) was a proposed design for the parliament of Slovenia shortly after WW2. They ultimately picked a somewhat uninspired architecture ...

    Here is another view of that church (Image: ECB). The 2011 issue of the German States series is dedicated to North Rhine Westphalia, the biggest state in DE, and features the cathedral in the biggest city of the state.


    On the coin you show, the towers are the most prominent parts. Makes sense as they were added to the medieval building (construction began in 1248) much later, and completed in 1880. Here you see the entire church ...

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes?

    St. Stephens has one of the coolest roofs. The cathedral is quite visible on the Vienna skyline, and sticks out. You can see it from just about anywhere in the city. This picture was taken from the famous Vienna Ferris Wheel:

    Cooool piece! I have seen that before but do not have one. This medal, designed by Walter Ibscher, commemorates the "Religion Talks" in Nürnberg: In 1525 the city council organized a theological dispute in order to decide whether the city should be Catholic or Lutheran. Apparently Osiander had the better arguments. ;) The two churches depicted are St. Lorenz and St. Sebaldus; above is the silhouette of the castle.
