Victor Emanuele's place in history is inextricably connected to that of Giuseppe Garibaldi, the Italian revolutionary leader with whom he collaborated to unite Italy under a single kingdom in the mid-19th century. Prior to that, Italy was a loose confederation of states. Known among the Italian people as 'the honest king,' Victor Emmanuel became the symbol and central figure of the 'Risorgimento,' and spent the rest of his monarchy consolidating the new kingdom.
The Italian 20 Lira coinage under Emanuele and Umberto was relatively short-lived and the mintages small when compared to other items in its genre. These items are generally available in uncirculated condition and are essential to any collection of 19th and 20th century gold coins. Despite the small mintage, the pricing is favorable.
