This 2014 $25 pure gold coin recognizes the upcoming canonization of Pope John Paul II, a particularly dear figure to Canadian Catholics as he was the first Roman Catholic Pope in history to visit Canada. Pope John Paul II was an influential and popular pope; his cause for canonization begun shortly after his death in 2005, with the conventional 5-year waiting period deferred. Mintage is limited to 1,500 coins. HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

This coin celebrates an important moment in Canadian Catholic history; the reverse image displays an engraving reproduced from a photograph of Pope John Paul II offering mass during his first visit to Canada in 1984. The painstakingly-applied variety of finishes and skilled engraving bring this iconic moment to life, with many small details making this an impressive coin. It would make a special addition to any collection of unique or religious-themed pure gold coins.
