There is something quite sweet about assembling a set of coins for a birth year.
But, a question:
"An. IV" I would interpret as the forth year of his pontificate.
"An. I" would be the first year.
Could you explain how you determine the year by this traditional, Vatican coin method of dating coins?
Oh. I just noticed the Roman numerals. The first coin appears to be 1982.
And if it is not too much trouble, what does the "P. M' mean?".
Is the second coin four years earlier?
