"World Youth Day - Krakow 2016". "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy" (Mt 5:7), is the theme of the 31st World Youth Day. It is particularly significant that the Youth Jubilee during this Holy Year of Mercy is being celebrated in Krakow, home to Saint John Paul II and Saint Faustina Kowalska, described by Pope Francis as "two great apostles of mercy in our times". The Philatelic and Numismatic Office is celebrating the event with the issue of a 10 euro silver coin, a work by Mariangela Crisciotti, depicting a group of young people who carry together the wooden cross symbol of the World Youth Days made upon the request of John Paul II for the 1984.
