The gilded souvenir medal of the Templars is issued due to the constant interest to their history and mystical ceremonies of Masons, which are considered to be the heirs of the Knights Templar. The symbols depicted on the round are taken right from the medieval seals and manuscripts of the military Catholic order of Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ. The iconic Templars’ image of the horse under two armed riders is minted on one side of the token, while the traditional shield of the knights is shown on the other side of the piece. Despite the fact that the original attire of the monks should have the red cross on white field, the shield bears blue one. The old-styled letters around the seal image of the riders are the part of the Templars’ name in Latin. The full motto of the Knights Templar is minted on the blue stripe along the rim of the piece around the image of the shield. The wall pattern behind it represents the wall of the Solomon Temple.
