Italy 10 Centesimi 1936 to 1943

Well that's kind of a neat coin, isn't it, Pirate?

(Too bad our modern US designs look so lame compared to nice old European issues like this one. Just my opinion, that's all.)

Your coin catalogs for $2 US dollar in average circulated condition. None of the coins in this series are particularly valuable:

worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $2
well preserved: $5
fully uncirculated: $12

There were two 10 centesimi coins issued in 1939. One was made of copper and one was made of aluminum bronze. The one with aluminum feels light compared to a similar sized coin made of pure copper. If you have an aluminum bronze coin, the value goes up a little. Maybe $3 average circulated, $15 fully uncirculated.

Coin: 556 , Genre: Central Europe North South
