  • Reverse side of the coin has the Coat of Arms of the Kingdom of Italy


The Lire started as the currency of the Kingdom of Italy when it was unified. The first king of Italy was Victor Emannuel III. Naturally, when they minted the 20 Lire Gold coin, the obverse side of the coin had a bust of Victor Emmanuel III. This continued until his death in 1878. From 1878 to 1900, the obverse side of the coin featured the image of then king, Umberto I. In 1900, Umberto I was assassinated by an anarchist, and the image reverted back to a picture of Victor Emmanuel III. His image graced the back of the coin until 1900 to 2002.  On the obverse is the year of issue. 


The reverse side of the coin has the Coat of Arms of the Kingdom of Italy. There is also some laurel leaves and ‘L’ and ‘20’.
