Pope Francis Anno I Silver Medal Photo

Official Vatican medal for the first year of Pope Francis. The obverse features a portrait of the Pontiff; around the portrait is the inscription: “Franciscus Pont. Max. An. I.” The reverse contains a Latin phrase that the pontiff says inspired him as a teenager to pursue the priesthood: "Vidit ergo Jesus publicanum et quia miserando antque eligendo vidit, ait illi sequere me." (Translation: "Jesus, therefore, saw the publican, and because he saw by having mercy and by choosing, He said to him, 'Follow me'").

Includes original plush case and certificate. Mintage of 4,000 in silver.
