Italian Gold Coins

Italian gold coins are borne from one the finest traditions of gold coin minting in Europe. Up until the Italian reformation, known as Risorgimento, Italian states minted their own gold coins such as the Doppie or Doppia, Sovrano, Scudi or Scudo and the well-known Ducat, Ducati or Ducato. What is a prominent factor is the sense of national identity present in the variation of Italian gold coin designs.
