Medieval coin: Venetian soldino of an unidenitifiable doge, minted in Venice between 1365 and 1423.

The soldino was known as the galyhalpens (galley-halfpence) as it was brought by the annual Venetian trading fleets. The soldino was about the size of English halfpennies and was popular because of a contemporary lack of small change: soldini in fact occur as English finds more often than proper halfpennies of the period. The Doge is Michael Steno and dates to the early 15th century.
