The 100 euro gold coin for 2018 inaugurates a new four-year cycle dedicated to the Apostolic Constitutions of the Second Vatican Council. We begin with “Sacrosanctum Concilium”, the “Magna Carta” of the Church’s liturgical renewal. The Liturgy is the “source” from which all the energy of the Church goes forth. The small reservoir depicted on the coin represents the Liturgy that by being renewed gushes and flows between the rocks, with the “Agnus Dei” (Lamb of God), symbolizing Christ and the Church. The Liturgy, source of energy and nourishment, feeds the large flourishing tree full of fruit, symbolizing the “new era for the Catholic Church.
