1992 Vatican City 50 Lire {1-year issue} Ioannes Pavlvs II FEATURING front: depiction of Pope John Paul II facing right Lettering: IOANNES PAVLVS II P.M. AN. XIV MCMXIV Pope Saint John Paul II (18 May 1920 – 2 April 2005) was Pope from 1978 to 2005. He is called Saint John Paul the Great by some Catholics. He was one of the most travelled world leaders in history, visiting 129 countries during his pontificate. As part of his special emphasis on the universal call to holiness, he beatified 1,340 people and canonised 483 saints, more than the combined tally of his predecessors during the preceding five centuries. By the time of his death, he had named most of the College of Cardinals, consecrated or co-consecrated a large number of the world's bishops, and ordained many priests. A key goal of John Paul's papacy was to transform and reposition the Catholic Church. His wish was "to place his Church at the heart of a new religious alliance that would bring together Jews, Muslims and Christians in a great religious armada". back: a cross functions as balance between industry and agriculture Lettering: CITTA DEL VATICANO R L.50 • quantity 1 • demonetized {no longer in circulation} polished Stainless-steel coin • diameter: 16.3 mm • weight: 2.7 g CHOOSE FROM DROP DOWN MENU {2.4 mm thick cords} • 22" black cotton necklace with lobster clasp • 24" stainless steel ball chain {lightweight 5 g} • 1-1/8" silver color keychain with 30 mm ring {see last photo} • no chain or cord message me if you need a shorter length black necklace
