Is My Italian Coin Worth Anything?

The value of an Italian coin depends on a number of factors, the most important being the age and condition. Newer coins are generally only worth their face value, while older coins could be worth more to collectors.

While coins that have not been circulated are uncommon, this generally causes them to have the highest value. To determine the value of an individual coin, owners can consult a collector’s guide or qualified appraiser. Coin appraisal takes into account the overall condition and age of the piece, as well as its rarity. Coins that were minted in limited runs are more valuable than those that have been in production for longer.
