Here is today’s coin of the day.
Italy, 5 lire, 1953 (KM #92)
The dolphin on the reverse and the rudder on the obverse make this a maritime coin. The clean lines, general lack of text, and sans serif font combine to give this coin a modern and fresh look. This type of coin was minted regularly from 1951 to 2001, with the 1953 mintage being 196.2 million, second only to 1954. This is a common coin with no legal tender value (thanks, euro), and no metal value (thanks, cheap aluminum).
