HABEMUS PAPAM

THE FIRST COMMEMORATIVE SILVER COIN OF NEW POPE FRANCIS

PRE-ORDER: COIN SHIPPED AFTER AVAILABLE FROM THE MINT (APRIL 2013)

The first silver coin featuring the new elected pontiff Jorge Mario Bergoglio as Pope Francis. From "the end of the earth," the Catholic Church found a new leader, a pioneer pope from Argentina who took the name Francis. He is the first pontiff from the New World and the first non-European since the Middle Ages.

The coin’s reverse portrays the representation of the new Pope Francis while he greets the crowd of St. Peter's Square. The reverse of each coin includes the Ian-Rank Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the year date.

BACKGROUND AND HISTORY

Pope Francis
Pope Francis in Latin Franciscus was born Jorge Mario Bergoglio in 17 December 1936. He is the 266th pope of the Catholic Church, elected by the Papal conclave on 13 March 2013.
A native of Buenos Aires, Argentina, he was ordained as a priest in 1969. In 1998 he became the Archbishop of Buenos Aires, and in 2001 a cardinal. He was elected pope following the resignation of his predecessor Pope Benedict XVI on 28 February 2013. Bergoglio chose the name Francis (the first time a pope has taken that name) in honour of Saint Francis of Assisi. He is both the first Jesuit pope and the first pope from the Americas. He is also the first pope from outside Europe since Gregory III in the 8th century.
