Product Description

The 20 Lira Italian Gold Coin was struck from 1861 to 2002. The Italian lira served as the official currency of Italy. Introduced in anticipation of Italy joining the Latin Monetary Union, the lira represented a direct continuation of previously issued denominations from Italian kingdoms

Key Features:

  • Struck between 1861 and 1923.
  • .1867 Troy oz of gold content.
  • Legal tender with a face value of 20 Lire in Italy.
  • The obverse features the reigning monarch of Italy, corresponding to the date mark.
  • The reverse showcases the coat of arms for the Kingdom of Italy.

The lira was aligned with the gold coins issued by France, Switzerland, and Belgium in terms of gold content and purity within the Latin Monetary Union. Because of its popular size. the 20 Lire Gold Coins from Italy are hard to find when purchasing gold online.

Mints in Florence, Milan, Naples, and Turin issued lira gold coins in various denominations starting in 1861, coinciding with the formation of the unified Kingdom of Italy. The obverse of 20 Lire Gold Coins features Italy’s first king, Victor Emmanuel II, who reigned from 1861 until his death in 1878, marking the beginning of Italy’s unified monarchy since the 6th century AD.

Between late 1878 and 1900, 20 Lire Gold Coins showcased the bust of Umberto I, who established a Triple Alliance with the German Empire and Austria-Hungary before his assassination by an anarchist in July 1900.

The reverse of the 20 Lira Italian Gold Coin displays the coat of arms for the Kingdom of Italy. This straightforward depiction includes the national seal of the kingdom, topped with a crown on the crossed shield. Surrounding the shield are .olive and oak branches, with the face value featured on this side.

What Our Customers Are Saying

“Professional, helpful and no stress approach made my purchase very simple. Fast shipping, low prices and great follow up. The coins were better than expected. I would recommend MBE to anyone looking to purchase precious metals. You will not find a more honest and sincerely company out there.”
“I recently purchased silver bars from MBE and the exchange went wonderfully. The staff was polite and helpful, the product was exactly what I expected, and I had it in my hands in just a few days after ordering. I would definitely buy from MBE again.”
“I was very pleased with my dealings with Midwest Bullion Exchange. I did not feel rushed on the phone with the representative and felt free to ask any questions. My father who has dealt with a lot of other companies that deal in precious metals was also impressed with this business.”
