Vatican 1985 Mint Set of 7 coins in original folder, on the work of the pontiff to spread the word of the Gospel. The 1000 Lire silver depicts John Paul II with his episcopal vestments appearing windblown, as might be the case upon the pope's arrival at the site of one of his visits; the 500 Lire bimetal portrays St. Paul in a boat; the 100 Lire shows an airplane in flight over a map of the world; the other four coins carry designs symbolic of the New Testament's four evangelists: an ox for St. Luke, a winged lion for St. Mark, an eagle for St. John and an angel for St. Matthew.
