Italian Umberto I 20 Lire Gold Coin

The Italian Umberto I 20 Lire Gold Coin is a superior example of 19th-century European coinage. Serving as the Duke of Savoy, Umberto I was later crowned King of Italy in 1878. He was in rule until his assassination (1900). His image first appeared on the Italian Umberto I 20 Lire Gold Coin in 1879.

Italian Umberto I 20 Lire Gold Coin Design – The front side of the Italian Umberto I Gold Coin features a portrait of Umberto along the words “RE D’ITALIA” and the date of issue. On the reverse side of the coin, a wreath encircles the Italian coat of arms and the denomination (L. 20) is shown.

Italian Umberto I 20 Lire Gold Coin Minting – Prior to Umberto I’s ascent to the throne in 1878, Italian coins were struck across the country in Rome, Genoa, Milan, and Turin. After this time, all coins including the Umberto I 20-Lire were minted in Rome. Note: In 1882, red gold was actually used for minting a portion of the coins.
