sterling silver 986/1000
Medals Issued: 4000


The official medal of the first year of Pope Francis' pontificate is available, in limited and numbered mintage.
It was coined by the Polygraphic Institute and the Italian State Mint in gold, silver and bronze.

It has a diameter of forty-four millimetres, and the image it depicts is the work of the artist Mariangela Crisciotti.
On the front it is depicted the Pope and, on the bottom right one can see the signature of the artist.

Around this image there is the phrase FRANCISCUS PONT. MAX. AN. I. The rim of the reverse side bears the phrase which profoundly affected the young Jorge Mario Bergoglio when, at the age of seventeen, he received his call from God: VIDIT ERGO JESUS PUBLICANUM ET QUIA MISERANDO ANTQUE ELIGENDO VIDIT, AIT ILLI SEQUERE ME

Around the edge there is the phrase E CIVITATE VATICANA and the serial number of the medal.
Each exemplar shall be accompanied by a guarantee certificate stamped by the Vatican Secretariat of State and the Italian State Mint.

This is NOT the medal with the error (Lesus instead of Jesus)

Last available. Impossible to find except at auction houses at high bid price. Its value goes up every day.
