VATICAN TO RELEASE FIRST EURO COINS OF BENEDICT XVI

"The first Vatican euro coins bearing a bust of Benedict XVI will be
released next week, according to information from the Vatican's numismatic
bureau.

Catholic World News reports that the Bureay will release a full set of
coins, denominated in euros, bearing a bust of the Pope on one side, with
the inscription "Citta del Vaticano" and 12 stars representing the European
Union.

The other side of the coin will be the same as the obverse of coins minted
by other member-states of the European Union."
