The internal part of the coin portrays the bust of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. The year 2006 surmounted by the mint mark ‘R’ appears to the right of the coin. The legend ‘CITTÀ DEL VATICANO’ is arranged in the form of an arc of a circle broken by the portrait. The twelve stars of the European flag are positioned around the outer circle of the coin.
