A complete post-Medieval Venetian silver soldino of Doge Leonardo Loredan (1501-1521).

Obverse: •LEO•LAV DVX •S•M•V•; Doge, as standard bearer of Venice, kneeling left, receiving the banner of St. Mark from the patron saint.

Reverse: •LAVS•TIBI•SOLI• (Thee alone be praised); Standing figure of Christ with halo, holding a cross, pellets in exergue.

Diameter: 12.5mm. Weight: 0.25g. DA=12:1.

Notes:

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.
