Italy 1 Lira  1922 to 1935
Italy 1 Lira 1922 to 1935

Hello Chet -- This is an interesting nickel coin from a mintage point of view. The design is kinda nice, too. Much stronger, in my opinion, than the 'picture drawing' designs we see on modern US coinage. (Please forgive my rant!)

There were millions of 1 lira coins minted in 1922, 1923, 1924, and 1928, so they are worth small amounts of money today:

1 LIRA DATED 1922, 1923, 1925 AND 1928
worn: less than $1 US dollars
average circulated: $3
well preserved: $35
fully uncirculated: $150

But, for dates 1926, 1927, and 1929 to 1935, only a few hundred coins were minted. If you have one of those, the values rise into the $500 range, or more. Check your collection. Maybe you've got one of the good ones!

1 LIRA DATED 1926, 1927, AND 1929 THRU 1935
worn: $20 US dollars
average circulated: $80
well preserved: $280
fully uncirculated: $650

Coin: 4668 , Genre: Central Europe North South
