The Numismatic Office of the Vatican celebrates the 150th anniversary of the foundation of the Circolo di San Pietro established in Rome in 1869 on the initiative of a group of young Romans of well-to-do backgrounds and noble families wanting to show the world their fidelity to the Pope. Pope Francis noted that, For many years the Circolo di San Pietro has offered a beautiful reality of assistance and help to the poor, a rich and fruitful branch of the ‘vine’ of charity, an expression of the ecclesial ‘vineyard’ of Rome.” Prayer, Action and Sacrifice is the motto of this ancient association and also the inspiration behind the coin created by artist Daniela Longo, available in the silver only version and the silver with gilding on both sides.
