This medal shows a strong image of Pope Paul VI with “Paulus VI – Pont. Max.” inscribed around the edge. The reverse has a beautiful image of the Virgin Mary clothed with the sun and standing on a snake.
Pope Paul VI is most widely known for writing the 1968 encyclical Humanae Vitae which affirmed the Catholic Church’s stance that all life is holy.
The medal was cast in sterling silver from an antique medal in the Rosa Mystica Collection so it shows all the beauty and history of the original piece. It comes with a matching holy card in an organza gift bag, ready for gift-giving, and was made in the USA.
