Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

A Venetian silver soldino of Doge Leonardo Loredan (1501-1521). The silver soldino of Venice 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.
