The National Bank of Romania issues new special coins to mark the visit of Pope Francis to Romania. They are gold and brass coins. The front side of the coin features images of several places of worship and the names of the cities where they are located, namely: St. Joseph’s Cathedral in Bucharest, the Marian Shrine in Șumuleu Ciuc, Holy Trinity Cathedral in Blaj, and Our Lady Queen Cathedral in Iași. The back side of the coins features the portrait and the coat of arms of Pope Francis, the dates of his journey to Romania, and the slogan “Să mergem împreună!” (Let’s walk together!). The circulation coins will be put into circulation through the regional branches of BNR in Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Iaşi and Timişoara.
