Comments

This coin commemorates the start of the third millennium under our modern 'Gregorian' calendar, even though last New Year's eve was popularly celebrated as the end of the millennium. This bi-metal coin is named after Pope Gregory XIII who reformed the calendar in line with the solar year in 1582.
