Medal commemorating Pope Francis' first year in the job

A really embarrassing spelling mistake has forced the Vatican to withdraw thousands of medals commemorating Pope Francis' first year in the job

Around the edge, the word Jesus was spelt with an L instead of a J.

6,000 copies of the new papal medal were made with the mistake.

A few collectors snapped up some of them before the error was noticed.
