Pope John Paul II Gold Coins
2014 marks the canonization of Pope John Paul II and the Royal Canadian Mint is commemorating this historic event by creating pure gold and silver memorabilia coins. They were unveiled on March 27 at several ceremonies.
These coins were created to pay homage to the life and legacy of Pope John Paul II and his cosmopolitan accomplishments. These accomplishments include his message of courage, defense of freedom and the profound statements of hope he expressed to the world.
These beautiful gold and silver coins are wonderful additions for any collector or history buffs. The reverse image on both coins is a photograph of Pope John Paul II offering Mass during his first visit to Canada in 1984.
