An official coin of Napoleon Bonaparte

Struck from 90% silver, and spanning an expansive 37mm in diameter, this eye-catching Crown coin was issued only from 1809 to 1814 – during Napoleon Bonaparte’s short-lived rule of the Kingdom of Italy.

The Kingdom of Italy

Covering several provinces in northern Italy, the Italian Republic was renamed the Kingdom of Italy in 1805, with Napoleon’s title changing from President to King. The kingdom was governed by Napoleon as a client state of France, and was administered directly by Napoleon’s step-son, viceroy Eugene de Beauharnais.

When Napoleon abdicated the crowns of both France and Italy in 1814, the kingdom was thrown into chaos. De Beauharnais attempted to have himself crowned, but an uprising in Milan scotched his plan. When Giuseppe Prina – finance minister and key player in the regime – was brutally beaten, humiliated and murdered by the rioting mob, it was clear that the Kingdom of Italy was doomed.
