This mint set has been issued during the ninth year of the pontificate of Francis and includes a commemorative €5 coin marking the 500th anniversary of the death of Pope Leo X, in addition to the standard 8 denominations.

Born Giovanni di Lorenzo de’ Medici on December 11, 1475, he became the 217th Pope of the Catholic Church from 1513 until his death on December 1, 1521.

Complex and turbulent years marked the pontificate of Leo X, as he had to face off with the Lutheran Reformation, which culminated in the excommunication of Martin Luther and the Protestant split in January 1521, just a few months before his death. He was also a great Renaissance Pope who appreciated and supported the work of the artist Raphael, who died in 1520 during his pontificate. During those years, Raphael oversaw a permanent display of his art in the Vatican and created a magnificent portrait of the Pope which is now preserved in the Uffizi Galleries in Florence.

The reverse side of the coin includes an impressive profile portrait of Leo X designed by engraver Marco Ventura and which is inspired by the iconography of the pontiff. The obverse includes both crests of Pope Leo X and of HE Pope Francis depicting the papal mitre and crossed keys.
