Medal to the Dogaressa Elisabetta Querini Valier

Fondazione Querini Stampalia hosts a collection of 2616 pieces , including 870 Greek and Roman coins, 141 Venetian coins, 429 Italian and foreign coins and medals.

Among the medals, the "osella" of the dogaressa Elisabetta Querini Valier is particularly noteworthy.

In the family collections of Venetian aristocrats, the presence of a numismatics collection was the sign of a mainly classic inclination. In the history of the Querini family, Gerolamo in the late 17th century and then Giovanni’s nephew in the early 19th century were the most interested in this kind of collections.

Unfortunately the collection is incomplete. The sacking at the Querini Palace on August 3rd 1849 by the Circolo Italiano patriots brought to the loss of the golden coins and the rare numismatics pieces of the family collection.
