Italy 2020: Pizza and Mozzarella
« on: October 25, 2020, 07:06:55 AM »
Italian Mint (IPZS) has issued a €5 collector coin commemorating "Pizza and Mozzarella" - apparently they are planning a new series of collector coins with the theme "Italy's Food and Wine Culture". The coin is Copper-Nickel and was issued in April in BU coin cards @ €25 per card. Mintage: 8000.

Hmm, I guess there will be 20 issues in that new series. ;) Not sure of course, but Campania (which this coin is about) is one of the 20 Italian regions. Napoli/Naples is not only its capital but also the place where pizza was invented or first made ... Below is a short video about the piece, from the design and plaster model to the coin and the coincard.
