Celebrate Pope Francis With This Exclusive FIRST-EVER Silver Commemorative Release!
The world was stunned. For the first time in 600 years a Pope had resigned. After Pope Benedict XVI left the Vatican, the concern grew as the Cardinals gathered in Rome to elect his successor. When the new pope appeared on the balcony of St. Peter's and took the name of the great Saint Francis of Assisi, all concerns turned to joy and confidence in the new pope.
Now, you and your family are invited to celebrate this momentous event with an exclusive first-ever one-ounce silver commemorative honoring Pope Francis.
A Man Of Peace, A Man Of The People, A Man deeply Concerned About The Poor.
150,000 faithful crowded into St. Peter's Square to receive the first blessing of Pope Francis. As details about his life emerged, it became clear what kind of humble, compassionate man the new pope is. He shuns regalia and privilege, living in a small apartment, cooking his own meals and taking public transportation.
Francis is the first "Americas' Pope," a man who comes from the New World and understands our problems and opportunities.
At this crossroads in history, Pope Francis takes charge with serious tasks ahead. Will he be remembered and honored as one of the greatest Popes in history? In anticipation of his reign, many are searching for a way to honor and commemorate the new Pope Francis.
