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

On the reverse of the medal, it reads:

PAN
Y
TRABAJO
(Bread and Work)

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.
