Description

Golden Lily, the icon of Florence

The "half Fiorino" or "half Sequin" was minted in the Grand Duchy of Tuscany at the behest of Giovanni Gastone de'Medici, last of Medici's family, in 1726. It was one of the most common coins, but at the same time rarer, because of the particular representation of the bust of St.John the Baptist.

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.
