Arago: 1992-2005 Definitives

1992-2005 Definitives

The international voyages of John Paul II, a popular subject of the definitive stamps in the first half of his pontificate, were replaced in the second half by series featuring art and architecture. A change in currency from the lira to the euro occasioned the release in 2002 of the Vatican's first euro-denominated definitives, showing ten different images of Mary from paintings in St. Peter's Basilica. The euro was again featured in a 2004 definitive series, depicting the national flags and one-euro coins of all fifteen countries that had adopted the currency to that point.
