REPUBBLICA DI FIRENZE

Year 1504 - Mint Master Lorenzo Guidetti

Minted when Niccolò Macchiavelli was Secretary of the Republic of Florence, it marks the monetary tension of a period of economic commitment that eventually leads to the fall of the Republic and the rise to power of the Medici family. The gold Florin of 1504 was worth over 5 lira and the Double Florin partly covered the incessant monetary needs that culminated in the 500,000 Florins spent to cover the costs of the war by Leon X against the Duke of Urbino for the sole purpose of pleasing Lorenzo de' Medici.
