9. Vatican Bi-metallic 500 Lire...by Rod Sell, WBCC Webmaster
I have finally managed to obtain a Vatican 500 Lire coin for the year
2000. This is the most difficult bimetallic of the Vatican pre euro
coins. The obverse shows Pope John Paul II and the reverse shows his
Papal Arms. The pre euro Vatican series is a interesting in that all
bimetallics from 1982 to 2002 show a portrait of Pope John Paul II,
except for 2001 which features Pope John Paul I. Vatican coins also
the year in Roman Numerals. The year 2000 is shown as MM. I
collect the Vatican Euro coins as they are just too expensive. This
is shown in our new images page.
