The Philatelic and Numismatic Office of the Vatican City presents the new coin set, composed by 8 coins (2 and 1 Euro, 50, 20, 10, 5, 2,Eurocent), bearing the date 2018. The reverse side is common to all countries, while the obverse shows the coat of arms of Pope Francis, Sovereign of Vatican City State, for the first time on a Euro coin set, the text "Città del Vaticano" and twelve stars. The 20 euro silver coin represents the image of Abraham prostrated before three men insymbolic gesture of greeting and welcome. Abraham aware that every wanderer brings God to visit us, welcomes the wanderers and offers them not only a pause but also reserves a generous attention to God. The scene symbolically replies to the Holy Father’s invitation to the communities to be hospitable as Abraham was. The 50 euro gold coin features St. Francis. The Saint of Assisi always showed particular attention to God’s Creation, living with simplicity and in a wonderful harmony with God, with others, with nature and with himself. "He shows us how inseparable the bond is between concern for nature, justice for the poor, commitment to society and interior peace". The coin celebrates the second Encyclical of Pope Francis ‟Laudato Si’ˮ dedicated to Mother Earth and to the care of the common home.
