Own this beautiful highly collectible Pope John Paul II Tribute coin!!!!!!!!
The Catholic Church in Sierra Leone has approximately 150,000 members and has played a great part in the charitable work that has been desperately needed since peace spread through the county, a peace that Pope John Paul II helped to bring about by personally appealing to the rebels to cease their activities. The Honourable Vice President, Mr. Solomon Berewa, was invited by Pope John Paul II to travel to Rome to take part in celebrations marking the 25th anniversary of his Ascendancy to the Papacy.
The design divides the coin into an internal portion and an outer ring. A beautiful profile portrait of Pope John Paul II occupies the interior of the coin with the wording ‘1920 – Pontifex Maximus Ioannes Paulus II – 2005’ in the interior surround and the value at the base of the interior portion. The design on the external ring depicts the Fourteen Stations Of The Cross which are a popular Catholic devotion to commemorate the passion and death of Jesus Christ. An illustration of rosary beads separates the stations in the external ring and the interior portion with the Papal portrait.
The Sierra Leone Coat of Arms is on the back.
