Description

Pope Benedict XVI’s papacy lasted from 19 April 2005 until his resignation on 23 February 2013. The unexpected move marked the first time a pope voluntarily resigned since Celestine V did so in 1294. Benedict XVI now resides at the Mater Ecclasiae Monastery in Vatican City and will turn 90 years old on 16 April 2017.

The new 11mm fine gold coin commemorates this anniversary in classic style. Thanks to Big Gold Minting technology, the coin weighs a mere 1/100th of an ounce while displaying an astonishingly detailed portrait of the pope.
