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 “Vat- ican City” and twelve stars. The Vatican Mint dedicates the 20 euro silver coin to the allegory of backbiting, a theme often touched upon by Pope Francis and addressed in his speeches, when he has said that, “a person in a community who gossips against his or her neighbour is, in a sense, killing him” (2 September 2013) and also during the Synod of 2023: “among the things that most sadden the Holy Spirit are empty words.” (Paul VI Hall 4 October 2023). Artist Marianna Frisone depicts an image representing slander by placing two figures in the centre of the coin: a woman speaking into a man’s ear and on the left side a little angel who, with his index finger resting on his lips, signals silence, thus expressing a warning to measure one’s words carefully. For the 50 euro gold coin, it has been used a technique that involves two planes, one with satin gold and the other with polished gold. Artist Chiara Principe depicts on the reverse side of the coin the concept of war and peace linked by a single element, barbed wire symbolising war and suffering that slowly turns into an olive branch representing peace and rebirth. On the left side of the coin, behind the barbed wire rep- resenting war, a man holding a rifle is seen with smoke and rubble in the distance shown in the background. On the right in the foreground, behind the olive branch representing peace, are a father and a little girl with a flower in hand watching two birds fly high in the sky.
