The Italian Lira made its debut in 1861 following the initial unification of Italian kingdoms and city-states under Victor Emmanuel II, then the King of Sardinia. A member of the House of Savoy, Victor Emmanuel claimed a title not used since the height of the Roman Empire, Pater Patriae, or Father of the Fatherland.

Victor Emmanuel II of Italy is found on the obverse side of 1863 10 Lire Italian Gold Coins in this set. His left-profile portrait comes with an Italian inscription of Vitorio Emanuelle II and the date mark of 1863.
The coat of arms of the Kingdom of Italy is found on the reverse side of the 1863 10 Lire Italian Gold Coin. The coat of arms featured here is the one that flew at the heart of the flag used by the Kingdom of Italy. While the Kingdom used the popular green-white-and-red striped flag still in use today by the Italian Republic, it included the crowned shield of the House of Savoy with a quartered field of red with a white cross. In this design, it is flanked by a laurel wreath. Inscriptions are again in Italian and read Regno DItalia, or King of Italy. The face value of L10 is also noted on this side.
The Italian Lira was used starting with the Kingdom of Italys formation in 1861. It would go on to serve as a basis for the Latin Monetary Union alongside the French, Swiss, and Belgian Francs. The Italian Lira was based on the Sardinian Lira used in Victor Emmanuels Kingdom of Sardinia prior to his unification of the Italian kingdoms and city-states.
