In this picture taken on Tuesday, June 4, 2013, Mauro Olivieri, head of the Vatican Philatelic and Numismatic Office, shows a two-Euro coin mint for the 2013 Vacant See during an interview with the Associated Press in his office at the Vatican. The Vatican still hasn’t fully solved an embarrassing shutdown in credit card services, despite announcing four months ago that systems were back up - as Pope Benedict XVI’s shock resignation laid the ground for a bonanza in Vatican-minted papal memorabilia. The impact has been far worse than the Vatican ever let on, costing the Holy See a fortune at a time when the Catholic world is still buzzing with excitement about the election of Pope Francis.
