Republic of Ancona

Ancona was a city-state (oligarchic republic) that existed from the 12th to the 16th century.

Thanks to trade with Constantinople, the wealth of medieval Ancona allowed it to successfully defend itself against powerful enemies, including the Holy Roman Emperors.

In 1348 Ancona was captured by the condottiere Galeotto Malatesta and he was expelled only after 35 years.

Ancona Citadel (XVI century) is one of the oldest European bastion fortifications.

On September 19, 1532 the city was occupied by papal troops and was included in the Papal State.

Ancona began minting coins in the 12th century and stopped only with the loss of independence. The main coin was the silver grosso Agontano with a diameter of 18-22 mm and a weight of 2.04-2.42 grams, roughly equivalent in value to the Milan soldo.
Later, the Agonto gold ducat was also minted.
