I nearly broke down in tears when I realized that the average indigenous person couldn't even afford to get one of these.  Awful.

Seems pretty reasonable when you consider that the US Mint is charging $55.00 for a commemorative half-dollar. The Vatican is charging about seven time face value. The US Government charges over a hundred times face value.
Good point. I hope it's worth it to whoever has that hobby

I have that hobby and I'm not going to get this one, I already have a coin celebrating the beggining of Vatican II and that's enough for my "Modernist" collection.
