Description

1000 Lire silver coin dedicated to Pope John Paul I (Pope Luciani), Brilliant Uncirculated.
This coin is not sold in original packaging.
On 26 August 1978 Albino Luciani was elected Pope with the name of John Paul I.
Only a month passed when, on 29 September 1978, the whole Catholic Church, from Rome to South America, was shaken by the sad and unexpected news: the Pope is dead.
The faithful, who in just thirty-three days of pontificate have been conquered by simplicity, by the gentle but determined soul of John Paul I, must already resign themselves to mourn.
