POPE JOHN PAUL II / ANGEL

VATICAN 1997

200 LIRE COIN UNC #3

PHOTOS ENLARGED TO SHOW DETAILS.

COIN IS BRIGHTER AND LIGHTER IN COLOR IN PERSON.

Under Pope John Paul II, the Vatican created new, innovative and impressive coin designs every year. 1997 was no exception. The 1997 year of mintage commemorates the 19th Anniversary of the papacy of Pope John Paul II.

One side of this beautiful coin shows Pope John Paul II in profile facing right and is inscribed: "JOANNES PAVLVS II P.M. AN. XIX MCMXCVII." "AN. XIX" refers to the 19th year of the Papacy of Pope John Paul II and the rest of the Roman numerals indicate the year of mintage, 1997.

The other side of the coin shows an angel guiding two people. This side is inscribed: "CITTA DEL VATICANO L.200." Slightly above on the right side of "L200," is the mint mark "R," signifying that this coin was minted in Rome.

This coin was legal tender prior to the institution of the Euro. It has a diameter of about one inch and is slightly larger than a USA Quarter.

Honor the memory of this great Pope, known as the Apostle of Peace, by proudly owning this hard to find coin minted in 1997.

"At a time marked by profound and rapid change, Catholics are called to offer their country new intellectual and moral energy to build a future inspired by the civilization of love. May honesty in every area of social life, willingness to mutually forgive one another and to seek reconciliation , acceptance of the weak and support for the poor, respect for the person and his dignity, attention to the authentic needs of the family, the primary cell of every society, be inescapable reference points on the journey towards the new Christian millennium. "
