TUSCANY

The first stamps of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany were issued on 1 April 1851; they depicted a crowned lion of Etruria (the land of the Etruscans) also known as Marzocco, the symbol of Florence. The face value was expressed in fractional denominations of the Tuscan Lira: Quattrino, Soldo, Crazia. One Lira consisted of 60 Quattrini, or 20 Soldi, or 12 Crazie. In Summer 1859, as a result of the Second War of Independence, Grand Duke Leopold II fled Tuscany. A Provisional Government issued new stamps denominated in Italian Lire and featuring the coat of arms of the House of Savoy.
