Revolutionaries - Mother Thérèsa - 1000 Togrog - Be or - 2022
This 7th and last issue of the "Revolutionary" series highlights a person who has been the champion of disadvantaged. Mother Teresa (1910-1997) was born Anjezë Bojaxhiu in Skopje (now capital of North Macedonia). Honored by the Catholic Church under the name of Saint Teresa de Calcutta, she was an Albanian-Indian Catholic nun and a missionary. After having lived in Skopje for eighteen years, she moved to Ireland, then in India, where she lived most of her life.
In 1950, Teresa founded the missionaries of charity, a Roman Catholic religious congregation which today has more than 4,500 nuns and was active in 133 countries. The congregation manages homes for people who die from HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis. It also manages popular soups, dispensaries, mobile clinics, children's and families consulting programs, as well as orphanages and schools.
Mother Teresa, the angel of mercy, is called a "living holy" because she spent her whole life helping those who had nowhere to go and person to turn. Wherever she goes, Mother Teresa has never turned away from difficult or unpleasant situations and has always watched over the needs of the poorest of the poor, the homeless, the sick and the dying. Teresa received numerous distinctions, including the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. It was canonized on September 4, 2016.
This 1 oz silver test with a draw of only 1000 copies pays tribute to her inheritance and represents mother Teresa carrying her famous white and blue sari. The combination of the high relief and the application of colors really gives it life on this amazing piece. The silver coin is accompanied by a classic gold test of a half-gram which takes up the same image over 11 mm and whose draw is 5,000 copies.
