3 more coins as a result of another swap with Jose, from Múrcia, Spain. Out of the 3 coins that he sent me last April,all depicted in the image, in the foreground the beautiful Italian commemorative coin.
The coin commemorates the 200th anniversary of the birth of Camillo Benso, Count of Cavour (1810-1861), a key figure in Italian unification and early Italian liberalism, and the founder of the political newspaper "Il Risorgimento". It features a portrait of Cavour based on a painting by Francesco Hayez from 1864.
