ITALY, Venice. Giovanni Bembo. 1615-1618. AV Zecchino (3.48 gm). Doge kneeling before St. Mark / Christ in glory. Scarfèa 648; Paolucci 1; Friedberg 1284. Lustrous, good VF. Rare. ($750)

Only a small amount of gold exists for Bembo, but it is of the highest quality, as during his reign the mint was instructed to machine strike instead of hand strike the gold coinage.
