Made in Italy
San Cayetano (Saint Cajetan) is known as the patron saint of gamblers, the unemployed and bankers.

Instrumental in the founding of the Theatines (Congregation of Clerics Regular of the Divine Providence), San Cayetano led a life void of possessions, including land. As a member of the Theatines, he was also prohibited from soliciting alms. Despite this, he founded a bank to help the poor, which later became the Bank of Naples.

Shortly after the death of his mother, he founded a hospital for incurables in Vincenza (Venice) in 1522. A year later, he had founded a second hospital, this one in Venice. His interests with these hospitals were considered to be geared as much as or more than spiritual healing rather than physical.

The medal measures 1 inch high including the hanging hole by 9/16 inch wide.
