Description

This pure silver coin was issued by the Royal Canadian Mint in 2005 to pay tribute to Pope John Paul II.  Mintage 24,100. HST/GST exempt.


More than any pope in history, John Paul II was a central force in world affairs, his active participation in contrast to the reclusive papacies before him. He was the first pope to visit Canada, traveling across this nation from east to west in September 1984 and returning to speak in Fort Simpson, Northwest Territories, three years later. In July 2002, millions gathered in Toronto, Ontario, to see the pope on World Youth Day.
