The Papal: Pope Francis Commemorative Silver Proof Coin 2013

The Papal commemorative coin celebrates the election of His Holiness Pope Francis. This is a silver proof coin produced on behalf of the Central Bank of Seychelles. The coin depicts a portrait of His Holiness the Pope with the surrounding words as "Habemus Papem" and Pontifex Maximus Franciscum I". The coin also illustrates the fourteen Stations of the Cross and shows a ring of rosary beads. The coin is accompanied with a certificate of authenticity and supplied in a presentation case.

It was announced in February 2013 that His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI had decided to resign and relinquish his official duties of the Catholic Church. On the 12th March 2013 the papal conclave convened to elect a new Pope represented by 115 eligible Cardinals through an election process. As per tradition, after five ballots, white smoke was seen from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel to show that the minimum two thirds majority had been reached. Subsequently on the following day an announcement from the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica was made to inform the world that the new Pope would be Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the Archbishop of Buenos Aires from Argentina.

Archbishop Bergoglio had taken the name Pope Francis in memeory of St. Francis of Assisi. His Holiness Pope Francis was also the first Jesuit, the first Latin American and the first non-European Pope to be elected since Gregory III in 731 A.D.

The Papal Commemorative Coin Specifications:
