Pope Francis Anno I Bronze Error Medal Photo

Obverse: a portrait of Pope Francis. 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'").

This is the error medal with JESUS misspelled LESUS. These medals were withdrawn from sale and new, corrected versions were prepared. Includes original plush case and certificate.
