Beautification of John Paul II.

In 2011 the National Bank of Poland issued a silver crown coin to mark the beatification of the late John Paul II. He served as Pope from October 1978 until his death in April 2005, ending one of the longest papal reigns in history at 26 years 168 days.

 

The obverse shows John Paul II with his arms outstretched to greet the masses. A color application is included over the background image of the globe, as John Paul II was the most widely traveled pontiff in history.

The reverse depicts the late pontiff ascending a staircase.
