Thanks for the pic! Sad that UFN has decided to issue this coin in proof as well, like in 2015. It appears that they will issue all future 2 commemorative coins in both BU and Proof, making collectors' life difficult...

Guess that, with regard to BU and Proof, both the issuers and the collectors are to be blamed. Of course the UFN can make more money this way ;) but there are people who actually want proof pieces. And since many other countries issue their 2 commems in both versions ...

But those countries issue 2 commemorative coins for circulation as well, unlike Vatican. ;)

Judging from last year's experience, the proof version should cost 37 and BU in card 19?
