Exchange Italian Lira banknotes

The national bank in Italy ceased accepting Lira in Feb 2013. We can still accept coins at £1.50 per kilo when part of a mixed collection.

The Italian lira (ITL) was first circulated in Italy around the early eighteenth century during the Napoleonic era. It became the official currency of Italy around 1861. The government started issuing banknotes in 1882. Paper money was issued in small value bearing the title ‘Biglietto di Stato’. First notes to be minted were 5 lira and 10 lira. In 1895 25 lira notes were minted and issued. By 1939 the following denominations were issued as paper money 1, 2, 5 and 10 lira. At the end of the Second World War new denominations were issued 50, 100, 500 and 1,000 lira and in 1945 the Bank of Italy minted 5,000 and 10,000 lira banknotes. By 1997 the Bank of Italy had also minted and issued 2,000, 20,000, 50,000, 100,000 and 500,000 lira banknotes. The Euro replaced the Italian lira in 2002 as the official currency.
