Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Probably a Late Medieval Venetian silver soldino probably of Doge Agostin Barbarigo (1486-1501). Late type (LAVS TIBI SOLI reverse type).

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.
