Martin Luther, was a German professor of theology, composer, priest, monk and a seminal figure in the Protestant Reformation. Luther came to reject several teachings and practices of the Roman Catholic Church. He strongly disputed the Catholic view on indulgences as he understood it to be, that freedom from God's punishment for sin could be purchased with money. Luther proposed an academic discussion of the practice and efficacy of indulgences in his Ninety-five Theses of 1517. His refusal to renounce all of his writings at the demand of Pope Leo X in 1520 and the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V at the Diet of Worms in 1521 resulted in his excommunication by the Pope and condemnation as an outlaw by the Emperor. Luther taught that salvation and, consequently, eternal life are not earned by good deeds but are received only as the free gift of God's grace through the believer's faith in Jesus Christ as redeemer from sin. His theology challenged the authority and office of the Pope by teaching that the Bible is the only source of divinely revealed knowledge from God and opposed sacerdotalism by considering all baptized Christians to be a holy priesthood. Those who identify with these, and all of Luther's wider teachings, are called Lutherans, though Luther insisted on Christian or Evangelical as the only acceptable names for individuals who professed Christ.
The reverse of the coin depicts the close-up image of Martin Luther surrounded by Catholic decorations and a Nano Chip on the center of the cross-shaped coin. On top of the reverse, the inscription: “MARTIN LUTHER” – the name of the coin. On the left, the inscription: “500 YEARS OF PROTESTANT REFORMATION”. On the bottom, the inscription: “2017” – the year of issue. The obverse of the coin features the Coat of Arms of Cameroon and the inscriptions: “REPUBLIQUE DU CAMEROUN” – the issuing country and “100 FRANCS CFA” – the face value.
