PONTIFICATE OF POPE FRANCIS YEAR 2014 - COMMEMORATIVE 5 EURO SILVER COIN  

"47th World Day of Peace"

"Fraternity, the Foundation and Pathway to Peace" marked the theme chosen to celebrate the 47th World Day of Peace. In his message, Pope Francis recalled the words of his distinguished predecessor: "Globalization makes us neighbours, but does not make us brothers." Communion with others and seeing each other "as brothers and sisters to be accepted and embraced" were the focus of the reflections for this year's celebration, symbolically represented on the reverse side of the coin by artist Daniela Fusco.
