A coin from the Italian Mint dedicated to Vasco Rossi’s Albachiara

A coin dedicated to Albachiara, the famous song by Vasco Rossi, will be minted during 2024. The author is Silvia Petrassi. This is the first coin in the “Italian Songs” series. A beautiful recognition for the song that had closed 2023 with the SIAE Award and now opens 2024 by officially becoming a national symbol, testifying to its immortality. The obverse depicts a vinyl record with, in the center, the lyrics of the song “Albachiara,” composed by Vasco Rossi and published on May 25th 1979, and on the reverse, the words “Italian Republic” and the author’s signature “Petrassi.” On the reverse, in the foreground, a young girl is depicted holding books while eating an apple. On the right, in an arc, is the inscription “Albachiara” and “R,” identifying the Rome Mint; on the left, “2024,” the year the coin was issued, and the value, “5 Euro.”
