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.
1 lira. Cornucopia. Scales.
2 lire. Honey bee. Olive branch.
5 lire. Ship's rudder. Dolphin.
10 lire. Ears of wheat. Tiller.
50 lire. Head of Italia. Vulcan at anvil.
