Italy Eritrea 1 Tallero (5 Lire)  1891 to 1896
Italy Eritrea 1 Tallero (5 Lire) 1891 to 1896

Eritrea was an Italian colony north of Ethiopia and east of Sudan in Africa with a long coastline on the Red Sea. King Umberto I of Italy reigned from 1889 to 1900 and supervised the minting of this nice 5 lire coin, with one tallero equal to 5 lire. This is an intriguing coin since only a few pre-1900 coins were minted in Eritrea.
