Description
The Italy 10 Lire Gold Coin, issued on various dates, is a notable piece of Italian numismatic history, representing the country's rich cultural and monetary heritage. These coins were minted in .900 fine gold, reflecting the standard for gold coinage during the period they were produced. The actual gold weight (AGW) of each 10 Lire coin is approximately 0.0933 troy ounces (about 2.9 grams), given the typical gold content and fineness. Designs on the 10 Lire gold coins vary depending on the era of issuance, with many featuring the reigning monarch of the time on the obverse. For example, coins from the late 19th and early 20th centuries often bear the likeness of King Vittorio Emanuele II or King Umberto I, reflecting the historical period of Italy's unification and its aftermath. The reverse usually showcases Italy's emblem or symbols of the state, such as the Savoy shield or an intricate representation of Italia Turrita, the national personification of Italy.
