Commemorating the induction of Pope Francis I, the 266th and newest pope of the Catholic Church, the Golden State Mint has produced a 1 AVDP oz Copper Round available at Provident Metals.
The obverse features an image of Pope Francis I along with words “POPE FRANCIS I,” “2013” and the initials “GM.” Vatican City details the reverse along with the inscriptions “VATICAN CITY,” “ONE OZ.999″ and COPPER.”
Pope Francis I has already accomplished many firsts after his election, including being the first pope from America and the Southern Hemisphere as well as the first Jesuit Pope. His extensive background as a priest, Archbishop and cardinal assisted Pope Francis I in deserving the role after Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation on March 13, 2013.
Pope Francis I, or Jorge Mario Bergoglio, chose Francis as his papal name in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi, who is among the most respected religious leaders in history.
The reverse of the coin displays Vatican City, which is under rule and home to the Pope. It was established in 1929 as an independent state and currently covers 110 acres with an approximate population of 800, making it the smallest independent state in area and residents.
