Italy, Silver 5 Lire 1926-36 Very Fine

These silver 5 lire coins were struck over an 11-year period from 1926 and are almost the size of an old UK shilling. The obverse shows the head of Vittorio Emanuele III facing left, while the reverse has an eagle holding a Fascio Littorio in its claws. Also known as a “fasces”, it was a symbol of power in the old Etruscan civilisation and then Ancient Rome, but was later adopted by Mussolini’s Fascist Party, which had established itself in power at this time. We have a number of these coins available in Very Fine condition.
