Buy Italy 500 Lire Silver Coin - Random Date

These Italy 500 Lire Silver coins were minted between 1958 and 2001. The 29.3 mm in diameter coins contain an ASW (actual silver weight) of .295 troy ounces. An Italian 500 Lire Silver coin was real currency in Italy with a denomination of 500 lira.

The obverse of these coins was designed by Guido Veroi and features the three ships of Christopher Columbus: the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria. Above the ships are the words "REPVBBLICA ITALIANA." Below the ship is the denomination "500 LIRE" and the mint mark "R." The reverse was designed by Pietro Giampaoli and is a portrait of his wife, Letizia. Surrounding her are shields, meant to represent each of the Italian states, making Letizia a symbol for Italy as a whole. The year of the coin is found on the edge.

While the design is generally Letizia and Columbus' ships, there are a couple of years when the design changed in order to celebrate something. Typically things represented are anniversaries of birthdays of famous people, like Michelangelo, or the death of someone, like Virgil. The Italy 500 Lire Silver coin was one of the last circulating coins to contain silver, up until production stopped in 2001.

Date and design received varies based upon inventory.
