    it's a Pope John Paul II coin, token, or medal.
    I don't see a date.
    Look on the edges.
    Can anyone else provide further help?

    IMO I don't think it's a coin because I can't make out a date, country of origin, or denomination. It is a token or medal of Pope John Paul II with the Papal Crest on the reverse. Google it if no one can offer further help.

    JOANNES PAVLVS II PONT.MAX .- Vintage medal

    The example on eBay is in better condition but the asking price is US$12.99

    Well.. I guess the Vatican in Italy where the Pope (past, present and future) resides.

    As mentioned, it's some kind of papal medal, and not a coin. Looks aluminum?

    John Paul II was pope from 1978-2005, so that dates it as a fairly modern piece.

    From my understanding, they sell these things all over the Vatican. I picked up one for $1 out of a junk bin. Silver plated with some other type of metal underneath.
