Our Lady of Fatima
Our Lady of Fátima, is a Roman Catholic title of the Blessed Virgin Mary based on the famed Marian apparitions reported in 1917 by three shepherd children at the Cova da Iria, in Fátima, Portugal. The three little children were Lúcia Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto. On 13 May 1946, Pope Pius XII granted a canonical coronation to the venerated image enshrined at the Chapel of the Apparitions of Fátima via his apostolic legate, Cardinal Benedetto Aloisi Masella. On 11 November 1954, the same Pontiff later raised the Sanctuary of Fátima to the status of Minor Basilica by his Papal brief Lucer Superna.
The reverse of the coin depicts Our Lady of Fatima, not only the Mother of God, but one of the most important figures of Catholicism, given the increasing evidence of appearance of the Virgin Mary. On top of the reverse, the inscription: “Our Lady of Fatima” – the name of the coin. The top of the obverse of the coin depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Tokelau flag and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “TOKELAU” – the issue country, “2017” – the year of issue, “2 DOLLARS” – the face value, “50 g 999 SILVER” – the weight of the coin and the fineness of the Silver. The bottom of the obverse features a beautiful circular Baroque design.
