Having a very official stamped and sealed document from the appropriate and authorised French medical authorities giving me the right to park in places reserved for invalids, I think I am entitled to tell you that a) "invalids" go from relatively light physical disabilities and mental problems to being unable to move without help or being unaware of oneself, so they are a pretty heterogenous group and b) they don't care how you call them as a group, but they do care if you park in a place reserved for them. ;)

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

I changed the title of the topic to reflect the terminology used for this coin series at the time: International Year of Disabled Persons - abbreviated to IYDP.

Thanks <k>.  Have to say I wasn’t sure exactly what the terminology was then, so thanks for clarifying it.
