Italy 2 Lire  1923 to 1935
Italy 2 Lire 1923 to 1935

Well, that's cool, Kacie. 1927 is a *good date* for this coin. The Italian 2 lire from 1923 to 1935 was minted in nickel and in large quantities during the early years, but, as time went on, mintage got lower and lower. When mintage gets lower, values go up. However, in Kacie's case, the spots, stains and scratches on the coin will work against value.

DO NOT CLEAN YOUR COIN. CLEANING RUINS VALUE.

Some catalog values are:

2 LIRE 1923 AND 1924
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $3
well preserved: $20
fully uncirculated: $100

2 LIRE 1925
worn: $5 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $20
well preserved: $80
fully uncirculated: $150

2 LIRE 1926
worn: $20 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $80
well preserved: $350
fully uncirculated: $1000

2 LIRE 1927
worn: $80 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $320
well preserved: $1200
fully uncirculated: $2000

After 1927, only 50 coins were made each year. If you happen to have one of those in uncirculated condition, the catalogs say $1000.

These are all catalog values. Actual values will be lower. Be sure to read our Terminology page.

The bound rods and axe head is called a fasces. It is a symbol of strength and unity.
