Italy, 50 lire, 1962

Same coin as the one from March 6th, just a different year.

Italy, 50 lire, 1962 (KM #95.1)

These 50-lire coins are very common in foreign coin bins at local coin shows. They are worth very little since they are not rare, no longer legal tender, and only made of stainless steel. Mintage is 17.7 million.

For me the defining thing about 1962 was the Cuban Missile Crisis.
