The front of the antique medal features the phrase "Heilige Helena, Bitte für Uns" which translates to "St. Helena, pray for us". The back says "Der Rock Aber War Ohne Naht, Von Oben An Durchaus Gewebt" which means "Now the coat was without seam, woven whole from the top down".
Helena (or Saint Helena) was an Empress of the Roman Empire, and mother of Emperor Constantine the Great. She made a religious tour later in life and brought a seamless tunic worn by Christ from Jerusalem to Trier, Germany. The garment is usually stored in the reliquary and is not on display. However, pilgrimages take place at irregular intervals to view the garment.
