Italy Set of 5 pre-Euro Coins

Italy, like many European countries, had its own coinage before the Euro, but even then they were of very little value and almost no one put them away. As I remember there were about 2260 Lira to the Pound. The coins cost far more to make than their face value. Just to make it more interesting, the smaller coins have the largest denominations! You get the 5, 10, 20, 50, and 100 Lire coins of Italy dated between 1992 and 1998. All five coins are in Uncirculated condition and very difficult to find today. We can offer the five pre-Euro coins of Italy now almost 20 years old and in Uncirculated condition for just £4.95. A most interesting set of coins with a low face value and a high cost of striking.
