2006 Vatican 5 Euro World Day of Peace

2006 Vatican 5 Euro silver proof coin celebrating the 39th World Day of Peace, with certificate and original plush case. In his World Day of Peace message, Benedict XVI wrote: "The very name Benedict... is a sign of my personal commitment to peace. In taking this name, I wanted to evoke both the Patron Saint of Europe, who inspired a civilization of peace on the whole continent, and Pope Benedict XV, who condemned the First World War as a 'useless slaughter'..." These words are the artistic inspiration for this coin on which Saint Benedict is depicted, writing the Rule, and the coats of arms of Benedict XV and Benedict XVI.
