The series consists of 8 coins with on the reverse side the technical characteristics that are the same for all countries participating in the single European currency. The obverse side depicts the coat of arms of Pope Francis, Sovereign of Vatican City State, the inscription “Vatican City” and twelve stars. The series comes in two versions: the first with the 20-euro silver coin and the second with the 50-euro gold coin. On the reverse side of the 20-euro silver coin, artist Orietta Rossi depicts the Magi riding two horses and a camel as they proceed united following the comet star. Pope Francis has spoken several times on the importance of the role of the Magi. In his homily at the conclusion of the 55th Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in 2022, the Pope said, “Traditionally, the Magi have been portrayed with colorful robes that represent the various peoples. In them, we can see reflected our own differences, our different Christian traditions and experiences, but also our unity.” The 50 euro gold coin is dedicated to the theme of immigration. Artist Gabriele di Maulo creates a very striking image of a man saving a young person from drowning. Next to them, in the waves, is a now empty boat, and behind them we see the continent of Africa and Europe. Pope Francis frequently speaks out on the issues concerning illegal immigration, urging Europe not to close its ports and borders.
