2008-2013 - Pope Benedict XVI 2nd Map 50 Cent

These glittering gems are legal tender coinage of the European Union. The Vatican City 50c coin depicts Pope Benedict XVI on the obverse. Struck in Nordic Gold, the composition is 89% copper, 5% aluminium, 5% zinc, and 1% tin. Nordic Gold actually contains no gold, but is non-allergenic, has antimicrobial properties, and offers resistance to tarnishing. Pope Benedict XVI has announced that he will be stepping down at the end of February after almost 8 years of service as the Pope of the Catholic Church. He becomes the first Pope to resign in nearly 600 years. Commemorate Benedicts time as Pope with a commemorative half Euro coin issued by the Vatican in 2012.
