    Happy World Coin Wednesday, stackers!

    This article series highlights the old circulating coins from Vatican City that depicts the Four Cardinal Virtues. I've previously shown three coins depicting cardinal virtues:

    Today, we will look at a Vatican City coin that depicts the cardinal virtue TEMPERANCE, which moderates the attraction of the pleasures of the senses and provide balance in the use of created foods.


    1953 1 Lira - Pivs XII

    Vatican City standard circulating coin from 1951-1958
    Reverse: Temperance standing pouring libation in bowl. "Temperantia" is written in Latin below.

    Temperance is the espousal of moderation, marked by personal restraint. It has been studied by religious thinkers and philosophers.

    Upheld as virtue throughout time and across cultures, it was one of the cardinal virtues in Greek philosophy, being believed that no virtue could be sustained in the face of inability to control oneself. It was incorporated in the Catholic catechism's Cardinal Virtues.

    Temperance is generally defined by control over excess, so that it has many such classes, such as abstinence, chastity, modesty, humility, prudence, self-regulation, forgiveness and mercy; each of these involves restraining some impulse, such as sexual desire, vanity, or anger.

    Obverse: The Coat of Arms of Pope Pius XII after his election.
    Pope Pius XII (Eugenio Pacelli 1939-1958) coat-of-arms depicted a dove with folded wings and sits perched on the trimount and above waves of water. The dove is holding an olive branch in its beak. This is a reference to the name Pacelli which means “peace”. Papal coat-of-arms depicts the crossed keys joined by cord and tassels, beneath the Papal Tiara (Triregnum).


    This is the fourth and last article in this series that depicts the Cardinal Virtues. I enjoyed sharing these coins with you most especially because they are purposeful and communicate meaningful, important, and relevant subject matters.


    Stay tuned for the next showing of special modern coins!
