First introduced during Charlemagne’s reign (768-814 AD), Provident Metals carries a variety of Italian Lire, including the 20 Lire Gold Coin containing .1867 Troy Ounces of Pure Gold. Each coin will arrive in circulated condition or better.
An official form of currency in Italy from 1861-2002, the obverse of each 20 Lire features the bust of Umberto I, King of Italy from 1878 until his assassination in 1900. It is inscribed with the words UMBERTO I, RE D’ITALIA (meaning King of Italy) and the coin’s date. The reverse of each Italy 20 Lire features the Coat of Arms from the ancient House of Savoy, which officially ruled the Kingdom of Italy from 1861 until the end of the Second World War.
Prior to Umberto I’s reign, Italian coins were minted in various cities including Milan, Turin, Rome and Genoa. From 1878 onward, Italian coins were minted exclusively in Rome. The Lire was officially replaced by the Euro on February 28, 2002. Each 20 Lire Gold Coin weighs 6.451g and has a diameter of 21mm.
