The minting of this coin follows by two years the historic event of the purchase by the Florentine Republic of the port of Livorno for 100.000 of these florins. In 1427 Giovanni Averado De’ Medici, father of the Grand Cosimo Introduced a bill on the cadastre subsequently approved, began the great rise to popularity and political power of the family.

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.
