Versione Italiana

In the life of every day the coin is a payment instrument that has replaced what was once the barter.
The currency was then introduced to facilitate the exchange of goods.
The lira was the currency in Italy from 1861 until 2002, when the Euro was introduced.
The numismatic market is undoubtedly one of the most ancient areas of collecting and in the past the Roman emperors did collected coins in the territories they had conquered and retained. The Renaissance is certainly the most prestigious period and the coin reaches a high economic level and his greatest period of splendor.
Today collecting ancient and modern coins remains one of the most exciting hobby although there are few but important rules.
