Vatican 2015: World Meeting of Families
« on: December 12, 2014, 12:48:33 AM »
In September 2015, the Roman Catholic "World Meeting of Families" will be in Philadelphia (USA). Some background info is here. The Vatican plans to issue a commemorative 2 coin on that occasion: "VIII Incontro Mondiale delle Famiglie - Philadelphia, Stati Uniti". Seems there will be a BU version and a proof version. More ... later. :)

May well be so, yes. :)  At least that theme would have something to do with the Vatican or the R.C. Church. There had been rumors before about an Expo Milan coin from VA ... and that I would have found a little strange. If the World Meeting of Families is nicely designed, great. If not, I may still get one, hehe.

Both BU and Proof versions have been issued. As usual, dealers were the priority of UFN. ;)
