Saor Alba PCI2010 Group 6 - 1901-2000: Submissions - Italy 50th Anniversary of the Kingdom of Italy 50 Lire commemorative 1911:


Kingdom of Italy 50 Lire - 1911


This lovely coin was the largest denomination of several commemorative coins issued in 1911 that celebrated the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Kingdom of Italy in 1861. Before the Kingdom of Italy was founded with the King of Sicily as it's ruler, Italy was a patchwork of small feudal states and small kingdoms. This coin commemorates the past, but also the future, with the ocean liner behind the two figures on the reverse of the piece.

Saor Alba - 1901-2000 - Portugal 4 Centavos 1919


Portugal 4 Centavos 1919


I have a lot of these coins, in fact I have several of them that show the successive breaking down of the die that struck them. This is a decent sized coin, unusual denomination and a stark feminine design that was utilitarian. Unfortunately inflation rendered them worth more in melt than as coins and they did not circulate long because of that. Much of the small change of the era was notgeld.

I accidentally caused the toning you see by wrapping it in paper towels and storing it in a plastic box for 30+ years.
