On December 17th, Pope Francis will celebrate his 80th birthday. The head of the roman catholic church was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1936. The origins of his family, however, lie in Italy.

In honour of this event, CIT presents a new generation of gold coins which utilize the cutting-edge BGM© technology. Big Gold Minting facilitates the production of affordable, large diameter gold coins. The large surface area of these coins can portray a much more detailed and intricate artwork than conventionally minted gold coins, while at the same time keeping weight and price low.
