Own this highly collectible Vatican coin of religious significance!!!!
Under Pope John Paul II, the Vatican created new, innovative and impressive coin designs every year. 1998 was no exception.
Vatican City bi-metallic coins consist of stainless steel and aluminum/bronze, one of which is the outside ring and the other the central disk. For this 1998 bi-metallic, the central disk is the stainless steel.
One side of this shiny beautiful bimetallic coin shows a profile of Pope John Paul II facing left and is inscribed: “JOANNES PAVLVS II P.M. AN. XX MCMXCVIII.” The “AN. XIX” indicates the 19th year of the Papacy of Pope John Paul II and the other Roman numerals refer to the year 1998.
The reverse shows the Papal Arms and is inscribed: “CITTA DEL VATICANO L. 1000.”
Note the “M” on the right lower portion of the Papal Arms which stands for the Blessed Mother Mary to whom Pope John Paul The Great dedicated his Papacy.
Beautiful edge with alternating reeded and smooth segments.
