BREAKING NEWS: Medals to mark the 1st year of Pope Francis' pontificate

The official medallion marking the first year of Pope Francis’ pontificate was presented here at the Vatican today.

Obverse of the Medal
(Francis, Supreme Pontiff, 1st Year)

Reverse of the Medal
(The scene recalling the call of Matthew, the basis for the pope's motto
Vidit ergo Iesus publicanum, et quia miserando atque eligendo vidit, ait illi, ‘Sequere me
In English is translated as "Jesus, therefore, saw the publican, and because he saw by having mercy and by choosing, He said to him, ‘Follow me’”)

Will these be locally produced?

I hope so.

We have great metal workers here in the country who can copy this.

Nice souvenir, don't you think?
