Italy had released a full new set of designs by 1955, up to 100 lire. The strange mixture of themes is attractive but not entirely successful as a set. The designs on the higher denominations lasted into the early to mid-1990s, while the lower denominations dropped out because of inflation.

Coin sizes in the images are not to scale.

They are different in the sense that the picturesare different. However, all are famous coin designs from antiquity and in that sense, they belong together. King Zog was an enthusiastic coin collector.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
