Democratic Republic of the Congo released four 2004 dated 25mm copper-nickel 1 Franc coins commemorating the life of the Pope. On the obverse of all four coins is a proud African lion, the dramatic emblem of the Congo, standing below the legend, REPUBLIQUE DEMOCRATIQUE DU CONGO, with the date 2004 below.
On the reverse of each coin is a portrait of the Holy Father at different stages in his illustrious life.
The first coin shows Karol Josef Wojtyla as he looked when he was ordained as a young priest on November 1, 1946, and bears the legend, PERE WOJTYLA (Father Wojtyla). The Papal side of this coin is inscribed "1946."
The second coin commemorates his consecration as Cardinal Wojtyla in the Sistine Chapel by Pope Paul VI on June 28, 1967. The Papal side of the coin is inscribed "1967."
The reverse of the third coin celebrates his election as the 264th Pope, John Paul II, by the College of Cardinals on October 16, 1978. The Papal side of this coin is inscribed "1978."
On the fourth coin is the Pope as he appeared in 2004, with the legend, VISITE LE CONGO ET 128 AUTRES PAYS, commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Pontiff’s visit to the Republic of the Congo and a lifetime of travel to 128 other countries. The Papal side of this coin diifers from the other three as it does not bear a year.
It is an attractive and reasonably priced set that honors this powerful Pope, known as The Apostle of Peace, who helped bring about the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe.
This Pope John Paul II Coin Set makes an inspirational collectible gift for yourself or someone you know.
