Medal to the Dogaressa Elisabetta Querini Valier

The Querini Stampalia Foundation holds a  coin and medal collection of 2616 pieces, which includes 870 Greek and Roman coins, 141 Venetian coins, and 429 Italian and foreign coins and medals.

Of the medals, the "osella" of the Dogaressa Elisabetta Querini Valier is particularly noteworthy.

For Venetian aristocrats, the presence of a numismatics collection was the sign of a mainly classical inclination. In the Querini family, Gerolamo in the late eighteenth-century, and later Giovanni’s nephew in the early nineteenth-century, were the most keenly interested in this kind of collection.

Unfortunately, the collection is incomplete. The sacking of the Querini Palace on August 3rd 1849 by the Circolo Italiano patriots resulted in the loss of the golden coins and the rare numismatic pieces.
