This year, give a gift depicting a treasured symbol of Christianity – the dove. Representing the Holy Spirit, the dove is shown descending on the obverse of this Uncirculated 500 Lire coin from Vatican City. Struck in 83.5% silver more than 40 years ago in 1978, it displays the Arms of Cardinal Jean Villot on the reverse, along with the legend sede vacante mcmlxxviii. This coin was released between the death of Pope John Paul I and the election of Pope John Paul II – “sede vacante” references the state of an episcopal see without a bishop. Presented in a deluxe holder with a gift box, this coin is a historic gift for the holiday season.
