Gabriel Hayes (1909–1978) was an Irish sculptor born in Dublin, Ireland. Her best known works are the halfpenny, penny, and two pence coins she designed for the Irish decimal currency introduced in 1971. She submitted ideas at her own initiative when no design competition was held. She is also responsible for the other aspects of the decimal currency such as lettering and decoration. Hayes was also an accomplished painter.
