This is the 7th and last issue in the Revolutionaries series and it highlights a person who was a champion of the underprivileged.
Mother Teresa (1910-1997) was born as Anjezë Bojaxhiu in Skopje (now capital of North Macedonia). Honoured in the Catholic Church as Saint Teresa of Calcutta she was an Albanian-Indian Roman Catholic nun and missionary. After living in Skopje for eighteen years, she moved to Ireland and then to India, where she lived for most of her life.
Mother Teresa, the Angel of Mercy, is called a ‘living saint‘ because she spent her whole life helping those who had nowhere to go and no one to turn to. Wherever she went Mother Teresa never turned away from difficult or unpleasant situations and always saw to the needs of the poorest of the poor, the homeless, the sick and the dying people. Teresa received a number of honors, including the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. She was canonized on September 4th, 2016.
This 1oz silver proof pays tribute to her legacy and depicts Mother Teresa wearing her famous white and blue sari. The combination of high relief and colour application makes her really come alive on this stunning coin.
The coin comes housed within a collector case with themed outer box which includes the Certificate of Authenticity.
