Italy 1 Lira 1922 to 1935 | italy 1 wreath bvono pedestal shield queen throne coat woman chair da way arm crown cross up lire italians italiana Hello Chet -- This is an interesting 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 pieces minted in 1922, 1923, 1924, and 1928, so they are worth small amounts of money today: less than $3 US dollars in worn condition, about $150 in well preserved condition like our photo.

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!
