Use Text statements. Click of a coordinate point on the plot, copy it and
paste it into the Text statement. Here is an example.

      {Circle[{1, 1}, 2],
        Text["A", {1.75659, 2.03292}],
        Circle[{0, 0}, 2],
        Text["B", {-1.38818, -0.0197372}],
        Circle[{1, -1}, 2],
        Text["C", {1.57238, -1.99344}]}],
    AspectRatio -> Automatic,
    ImageSize -> 400];

To click off a coordinate:
1) Select the plot by putting the cursor in it and clicking.
2) Press and hold Ctrl. When you move the cursor you will obtain cross
3) Move the cursor to where you want to put the text and left click.
4) Right click and use Copy. (Or use Ctrl-C or the menu).
5) Paste the copied coordinate as the second argument in the Text statement.
