POPE JOHN PAUL II / CHILDREN 
VATICAN 1999
100 LIRE COPPER-NICKEL COIN UNC
 
Under Pope John Paul II, the Vatican created new, innovative and impressive coin designs every year. 1999 was no exception.  The 1999 year of mintage commemorates the 70th Anniversary of the Vatican City.
 
 
One side of this beautiful Vatican copper-nickel coin shows Pope John Paul II in profile facing right and is inscribed: "JOANNES PAVLVS II P.M. AN. XXI MCMXCIX." "AN. XXI" refers to the 21st year of the Papacy of Pope John Paul II and the rest of the Roman numerals indicate the year of mintage, 1999. 
 
 
The other side of the coin shows a scene depicting children of the world gathered in peace.  The theme is The Right to Peace.  This side is inscribed: "CITTA DEL VATICANO L. 100."  On the right side, near the "O" in "VATICANO" 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  22 mm and is slightly larger in diameter but slightly less tick than a USA Nickel.

Beautiful edge has alternating reeded and smooth segments.

Honor the memory of this great Pope, known as the Apostle of Peace, by proudly owning this hard to find coin minted in 1999.
