Coins of Cardinal Virtues Part 1: Prudence

in Silver Gold Stackers2 years ago (edited)

In this article series, I will feature coins that depict the four cardinal virtues starting with the cardinal virtue of prudence.

1958 10 Lire - Pivs XII Vatican City

Standard Circulating Coin minted from 1951 to 1958


The reverse of the coin shows the figure of Prudence (Latin: Prudentia). Prudence holds a serpent signifying self-control and the ability to judge between actions appropriate to the situation presenting itself at any given time.

A virtue is a habitual disposition to do good. Among all the virtues, there are four that play a pivotal role and accordingly are called cardinal.
  • Prudence, which disposes the practical reason to discern in every circumstance one's true good and to choose the right means of achieving it.
  • Justice, which consists in the firm and constant will to give others their due.
  • Fortitude, which ensures firmness in difficulties and constancy in the pursuit of the good.
  • Temperance, which moderates the attraction of the pleasures of the senses and provide balance in the use of created foods.

This is the first installment of four articles featuring coins that depict the Cardinal Virtues. I hope to see you again when I show the other three coins.

Very nice Coins bestie. Looking forward to more. Take care🥰🤗

I wish I had the resources to collect the Papal coins. I guess I will continue to pick them up, and perhaps in 10 years I would have some of the older ones. I thought that this is an appropriate series to show every World Coin Wednesday... coins from The Papal Mint.
Enjoy the rest of the week, bestie, and take care 🥰🌺🤙

Beautiful coins and I know that they are special to you. Thank you for sharing @silversaver888! Have a lovely evening!🤗❤️🌸

These coins are special! The Papal coins are interesting. The reverse designs all coins have significance and many refer to historical events in Christianity and the values that Christians believe and follow. Because of this, and for me specifically, the design of these coins have more personal significance than any other coins of any series. I hope that you will enjoy this series.
Have a beautiful day, my sweet sis @elizabethbit. Take care 🥰🌺🤙 lots of love and hugs 🤗❤️

I couldn't help thinking of the song "Dear Prudence" not the Beatles but Siouxsie and the Banshees version.


Nothing to do with the virtue as I do admire the practice of proper manners as like the Victorian and Edwardian gentry practiced rather than the crude public shouting matches we have now a days.
Feels like I was born in the wrong era.
Always with Love,
