The misspelling is at around 2 o’clock on the medal.

Take a look at this medal from the Vatican. It has been recalled after an embarrassing misspelling.

The word “Jesus” was spelled with an “l” instead of a “J” – and became “lesus.”

The medal – produced by the Italian State Mint – was supposed to commemorate the  beginning of Pope Francis’ papacy.

More than 6,000 medals were recalled yesterday, but, not after four of them had been sold. They will become valuable collector’s items.
