Italy Naples and Sicily 8 Tornesi 1796 and 1797
These 8 (otto) tornesi coins were issued by the Kingdom of Naples only in 1796 and 1797. Other tornesi denominations with identical or similar inscriptions were also issued at the time, but this page applies only to the 8 tornesi of 1796 and 1797. Both dates are of equal value, as follows:
worn: $22 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $165
well preserved: $250
fully uncirculated: $1400 and up
The picture comes via wikimedia.org from Jerry Woody from Edmonton on Flickr, and CoinQuest thanks Jerry for use of his photo.
