A complete medieval silver soldino, issued by Doge Antonio Venier between AD 1382-1400. +.S. MAR[CVS VEN]ETI reverse, depicting the winged and nimbate lion of St mark facing within a circle, holding book of gospels.

Notes:

The Venetian silver soldino was often known in England as the 'galyhalpens', or Galley-halfpence after the 'Galley-men' who arrived annually with the Venetian trading fleets bringing many of these coins with them. During the 15th and 16th centuries they began to circulate in place of the English halfpenny due to a shortage of this denomination.
