Click to Enlarge Image Click to Enlarge Image

Bertuzzi-76 variety, struck in Bronze.  68mm.

A large, impressive piece bearing a portrait of Pope Pius VII on one side, and an incredibly bold, intricately engraved depiction of the Roman Colosseum on the other (including the circa 1807 scaffolding on the left side presumably erected to conduct the sort of periodic restoration that seems to be going on every single time I visit an historic edifice and try to take a picture of it).

This coin is from the CRO archives and is not currently available for sale.
