Italy 20 Centesimi 1894 and 1895
Just about all of the Italian coins from this time period have the likeness of king Victor Emmanuel. Not this one. A simple crown and wreath design appears on one side, with a simple numeric denomination on the other. The coin is made of copper-nickel.
Catalog prices, as always, depend on the amount of wear. For coins without problems, such as scratches, stains, cleanings, nicks, gouges, and the like, the catalogs say:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $5
fully uncirculated: $50
Use our Important Terminology page to convert these catalog values to actual buy and sell values.
The coin in our picture has a KB mint mark under the wreath. If you can find one with an R mint mark, or one dated 1895, double the catalog values above.
