First issue of Vatican euro coins (2002–2005)
The initial issue of Vatican euro coins featured an effigy of Pope John Paul II. They were issued only in collector sets and bore an extreme markup with the 2002 collector set costing well over a thousand U.S. dollars.

Second issue of Vatican euro coins (April 2005)
Following the death of Pope John Paul II in 2005, the Vatican issued special coins during the period of Sede vacante depicting the emblem of the Apostolic Chamber (i.e. two crossed keys beneath an umbrella) and the coat of arms of the Cardinal Chamberlain.

Third issue of Vatican euro coins (April 2006)
When the new pope was elected, the third series of Vatican euro coins were issued on April 27, 2006 and feature the effigy of Pope Benedict XVI. The coins carry an inscription "Cittΰ del Vaticano" and the twelve stars of Europe. The details of this design are published in the Official Journal of the European Union.
