Italy 10 Lire  1951 to 2002
Italy 10 Lire 1951 to 2002

These coins are made of aluminum and have very low value, a few US cents each. The coin catalogs report that some of the earlier dates, before 1966, can be worth up to $20 or so, but only if in fully, absolutely uncirculated condition. In well preserved condition these early coins can bring a few dollars when sold to collectors.

According to an interested CQ visitor names George, the object on the front of the coin is an old form deep soil plow, or, if you lean British, plough. Thanks, George!

Coin: 13411 , Genre: Central Europe North South

Requester description: 1953 1 side: picture of what is maybe a log with 2 branched trees growing out from it. Year in center bottom w mint mark to the left of year. 'Repvbblica Italiana' on top center with each word on its own line.(italiana written underneath repvbblica' 2 side: 2 wheat stalks comming up from jst left of the bottom center.1 wheat tip points straight up on far left side, 2nd wheat tip seperates bending tip toward center of far right edge. (So the 2 wheat tips together almost form like an 'L' shape.) The number 10 sits in the right top edge centered between the two wheat tips. Vry small almost unnoticable writting on bottom center edge jst right of the base of wheat stalk that I think says 'romagnol' 10
