Description

In 1504 the Florentine Republic commissioned the Mint Master Lorenzo Guidetti, to produce a coin with a face value twice that of the Gold Florin, and the "two Gold Florins" was born. It was coined when the secretary of the Republic was Niccolo Machiavelli, thus marking the monetary tensions of that time, which will lead to the end of the Republic and the rise to power of the Medici’s family. In 1504 the "Fiorino d’Oro" was equivalent to about 5 lire, this double Fiorino partly covered the Incessant need for monery that would culminate with the half a million florins spent on the war, architected by Leone X to the Duke of Urbino, for the sole purpose of obtaining the goodwill of Lorenzo de’Medici.

An ancient tradition that still lives on today

The oldest literary testimony available to us is that of the Roman jurist Sesto Pomponio from the second century BC, who attests, even in his day, the custom of using "pro gemmis" ancient coins, gold or silver. In the 13th century Florence, with the birth of the Fiorino d'Oro, the very ladies of the time brought great attention to jewellery that included the coin that had the power to make Florence excel at the center of the financial system known at the time. Today, as then, Torrini proposes this ancient custom.
