Vatican to Release Official Medal for 7th Year of Pontificate of Pope Francis

August 09, 2019. Includes Amazonia Theme

The official medal of the 7th year of Pope Francis’ pontificate (2013-2020) will be released on August 12, 2019, the Vatican announced August 9.

It will be available in limited quantities – 30 gold, 2000 silver, 2500 bronze – from the Apostolic See’s Heritage Administration and from the Vatican Bookstore.

Bearing the coat of arms of the Argentine pope, the medal represents a dove and natives, on a river, vegetation and symbolism of the sacrament of baptism and the Eucharist: an Amazonian decor that recalls the theme of the next Synod of Bishops (October 2019).

Also appears the Latin inscription “And vidit Deus quod esset bonum (Gn 1)” – And God saw that it was good – which expresses “the amazement of God vis-a-vis his own creation, that we are called to welcome in his multiform originality “.

The medal is the work of Orietta Rossi and each copy is accompanied by a certificate of guarantee numbered with the dry seal of the Secretary of State and the Polygraphic Institute and the Mint of the Italian State.
