Jorge Mario Bergoglio, better known as Pope Francis I, is the first Jesuit Pope and the first from South America. With his background as an Archbishop, priest and cardinal, Pope Francis I was an obvious choice to replace Pope Benedict XVI after his resignation on March 13, 2013.
The Pope Francis I 1 oz silver round at Provident Metals was produced to commemorate the pope’s induction as the newest and 266th pope of the Catholic Church. Each round was minted at the Golden State Mint and contains 1 troy ounce of .999 fine silver bullion.
A portrait of Pope Francis I is featured on the obverse with the inscriptions of “POPE FRANCIS I,” “2013” and the initials “GM.” The reverse bears an image of Vatican City and is inscribed with “VATICAN CITY” and “ONE TROY OZ .999 FINE SILVER.”
Vatican City, established as an independent state in 1929, is ruled by and home to the pope. It is made up of 110 acres and is home to approximately 800 people, which makes it the smallest independent state in terms of area and residents.
