“NON HO UNA LIRA!”
Before the â¬uro-pean currency, Italy has Lira. When people were short of money or broke they often used to say “non ho una lira”, which sounds like “I don’t have a penny”.
Old Lira was collected, blessed with Holy Water and given as lucky charms for prosperity with some words of empowerment.
In the picture a coin of 1939.
May the eagle of Juppiter bless us all with happiness and wealth
