***Hooked on Ancients***

Ancient Coins | Kepi

Okay, All you ancient coin collectors...you got me hooked now! Here's a new addition to my collection! From the Eric P. Newman collection I swept this one up at an auction! ** (1723-37) Italy Crazia Tuscany Florence MS63 ** I don't know too much about this coin right now other than I love it! Does anybody have any information to help out?

Is that St. John the Baptist on the coin? Perhaps the patron of the city or the area?

The Medici family was a VERY powerful political entity in Italy. I believe they even produced a Pope. I could be wrong on that.

The quattrino is an ancient Italian currency denomination largely used in Central Italy, especially in Tuscany and Rome. Its name derives from the latin quater denari, because its value was equal to four denari.
