70076
Italian? religious medal with Latin text & Jewish/Christian imagery 18th Century
91470076
Italy(?): religious/Church medal, ND (mid 18th Century); white metal; size: 39mm; weight: 21.15g. Obverse depicts images associated with Judaism surmounted by the Latin Legend "HÆC CORPORIS UMBRA FUTURI" ('The Body Shadow'). On reverse images of wine and literature, with the Latin legend above "PRÆSENTIS SYMBOLA CHRISTI" ('Feast of the Christ'). A medal that generations of numismatists have had difficulty identifying, with most catalogues relegating it to their "miscellaneous" sections (Antoine-Feill 1908, Sally Rosenberg 1932 #1308); the "Numophylacii Ampachiani" catalogue 1830 part 2 #8987 doesn't credit an engraver to the piece. Rosenberg suggests the piece may be the work of Martin Omeis, but his portfolio consists of portrait medals (Forrer v.4 p.321); Antoine-Feill gives the medallist as "EF", which Bernhard ("Medaillen und Plaketten", p.213) renders as the famous Swedish minter Carl Enhörning - but this medal is not in his style.

98970221
Italy (Israel): "Judaea Restituta" / "And the Sons Have Returned to their Home" medal, 1946; by Jewish-Italian medallist Arrigo Minerbi; struck in silver by Stefano Johnson of Milano; size (medal): 35mm; weight: 29g. Obverse: sailboat with Hebrew legend "Ve Shavu Banim LeGvulam" (Yirmiyahu Ch.31 v.16) above & dates 5705-5706 (1945-1946) in exergue; Minerbi's initials, left + "800" silver, Johnson's on right edge. Reverse: Latin legend "Judea Restituta" (a play on Roman "Judea Capta" coins of 70+ AD) with arch of Titus & gate of Jerusalem's Old City & dates as on obverse in Roman numerals. Commissioned by Yehuda Arazi, Italy commander of "Mossad le Aliya Bet" (secret department of illegal emigration to Palestine) as token of gratitude to local civilians & officials who assisted him in enabling Jews to escape to Palestine, specifically following the "La Spezia affair" (April 1946) in which 2 illegal emigrant ships were stopped by the British, 1000+ Jews revolted, staged a hunger strike & occupied the port - and the public outcry caused the British to release the boats to Palestine. Awarded starting Passover eve, 1946; we estimate that 100-200 were issued. Rare; considered to be Israel's first official medal even as a pre-State issue.
