PONTIFICATE OF POPE FRANCIS - 10 EURO GOLD COIN - YEAR 2017  

Baptism
We celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism as usual with the ten euro gold coin designed this year by artist Daniela Fusco. The coin depicts the Baptism of Christ in the Jordan with water descending on his head from a seashell, a Christian symbol of the generating force of new life. With baptism we are reborn as children of God, incorporated into the Church, and made participants of its mission.
