Tuscany coins catalog with values

 

Tuscany is a region in northwestern Italy with its historical capital in Florence.
In the Middle Ages, numerous states existed in this territory, the largest of them being the republics of Pisa, Florence, Siena and Lucca.

In 1555, Sienna was conquered by Florence and all of Tuscany, with the exception of Lucca and several small territories, came under the rule of the Medici family.
In 1537, the grandson of Lorenzo the Magnificent, Cosimo de' Medici, became Duke of Tuscany.

 

 

Grand Duchy of Tuscany (1569–1860)

In 1569, Tuscany was transformed into a Grand Duchy.
In 1737, Grand Duke Gian Gastone de' Medici died without leaving any heirs.

In 1838, the Great Powers handed over the Duchy of Tuscany to Franz Stephen, husband and co-regent of Empress Maria Theresa, who began to rule under the name Francesco II. Franz Stephen was the nominal Duke of Lorraine (occupied by France) and the French king Louis XV insisted on ceding Lorraine to them in exchange for Tuscany.

In 1801, Tuscany was conquered by the French, the duchy was liquidated and the kingdom of Etruria was formed on its territory.
In 1807, Napoleon annexed the kingdom and annexed it to France. In 1809 he gave the title of Grand Duchess of Tuscany to his sister Elisa.

In 1814, Tuscany was returned to the Habsburgs.

During the revolution of 1848, Grand Duke Leopold II relinquished his title as Archduke of Austria and moved against Austria. After a decade of trying to maneuver between republicans and monarchists, in 1859 Leopold II again sided with Austria, and soon abdicated the throne in favor of his son Ferdinand IV. However, the new Grand Duke, who fled with his father, was the sovereign of Tuscany only nominally, and then only until March 22, 1860, when the National Assembly announced the annexation of Tuscany to the Kingdom of Sardinia, which in 1961 was transformed into the Kingdom of Italy.
