Watch this place next year. ;) The Vatican will issue two gold coins in 2014, dedicated to the canonization of John XXIII (€20) and John Paul II (€50). Also, I find it quite suspicious that the Polish central bank plans a "tba" issue, without any further details, in April. That happens to be the month when the two are canonized ...

Pretty good speculation, Christian. What's with the background? Looks like an igloo to me. A halo, maybe?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Not sure whether this is actually a halo, but it sure looks similar - and I think the designer had that in mind. :)  All the coins that will be issued on that occasion - see here http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php?topic=26404.0 - have that design ...

Oh, it's the top of a free floating ananas, a sure sign that a yellow sub-marine isn't far....

Romania, 100 lei, 1999.  The Pope's visit to Romania.  Left: John Paul II; right: the Patriarch of Romania.

Rather poor. Romania usually produces far better designs than this.
