The currency of Italy from 1861 to 2002 was the Italian lira. In advance of Italy joining the Latin Monetary Union, the coin was introduced. In purity and gold content in the Latin Monetary Union, the lira was matched against the franc’s gold coins issued by Belgium, Switzerland, and France. Compared to the popular French 20 franc "Angel" coin design, these coins are the same weight and size – but tend to be harder to find for online gold buyers.
Highlights of this coin include the following:
• By the Kingdom of Italy, issued a face value of 20 lire.
• Contains .1867 troy oz of actual gold content.
• Struck between 1861 and 1923.
For the Kingdom of Italy, the coat of arms is featured on the reverse side of this coin. Matching the date mark is the reigning monarch of Italy, featured on this coin’s obverse side.
