Italy - 1955 10 Lire question.


Recommended Posts

I reciently started collecting coins and came across a few from Italy and noticed the 10 Lire from 1955 has a dot in hte middle of the 0. Is that common? The coins from 1953, 1954, and 1956 do not seem to have it and am just curious. I tried searching out some information but have not found anything.

Sorry never noticed it. Hopefully someone will know about it. Welcome to CoinPeople.

You've noticed a few like that? Pretty cool find if that is the case! It means you might have coins struck from the same die - pretty rare after this many years of circulation

I have a couple with the dot in the 0, and came across a few from 1955 without the dot. I checked the World Catalog of Standard coins and it lists nothing as well. So guess will hold onto them.

A Dutch online coin catalog lists the 1955 without the dot : http://www.catawiki.nl/catalogus/munten/landen/italie/704801-italie-10-lire-1955

(click the images to enlarge) It does not mention anything about a dot.

 

Neither does Numista : http://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces728.html
