Collection Folders Issued by The Vatican

What is a Collection Folder?

Since 1997 the Vatican City has issued collection folders containing a single issue or a series of stamps dealing with the same topic.  For example the collection folder for "Towards the Holy Year" is a 16-page booklet contains the 1995 through 1999 "Towards the Holy Year 2000" stamps and the 2000 Holy Year 200 set.  The most famous is the "Pro Terremotati 1997" or Earthquake Folder which contains the 1990 Caritas overprinted souvenir sheet.
