Italy 50 Centesimi 1919 to 1935

Italian coins are cool. They have a lot of neat designs. Misty's coin shows ruler Vittorio Emanuele on one side and Aeqvitas, Roman goddess of equity, on the other.

These coins are minted in nickel and carry decent collector value when in good condition. Here are some typical catalog values that apply to almost all dates:

worn: $2 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $8
well preserved (like our picture): $20
fully uncirculated: $48

Mintages of these coins vary substantially, and there are some special dates which command much stronger values. The list below shows the special dates, but to attain the catalog values shown, the coin must be fully uncirculated. Circulated coins will be worth far less.

1924: $500 when fully uncirculated
1926: $300 unc
1927 to 1935: $500 unc

Use our Terminology page to convert these catalog values to actual buy and sell values.

Coin: 6342 , Genre: Central Europe North South

I do have 1919R with a counterstamp a kind of X in ciecle on obverse & reverse
Also have the 1921R with a counterstamp 1 on obverse of coin right across the face of Vittorio Emanuele - Wonder what these counterstamps signify & does this reduce the value of the coins in question. Your views appreciated. Thanks!! - Lawrence1947
Hey Lawrence -- technically speaking, it does lower the value. Some collectors are willing to pay more if the counterstamp has historical significance and doesn't ruin the eye appeal of the coin, but it sounds like the marks on your coins are generic and would probably lower the resale value.
