2014 Canada $10 Pope John Paul II Fine Silver (No Tax)

The year 2014 marks the canonization of Pope John Paul II. He was not only the first Roman Catholic pope in history to visit Canada, but a church leader whose pontificate featured many firsts around the world.

The reverse image reproduces a photograph of Pope John Paul II offering Mass during his first visit to Canada in 1984. Through the expert application of varied finishes and skilled engraving, Royal Canadian Mint engravers faithfully capture the power of the moment as the pope raises the Consecrated Host at the elevation. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
