Patterns entered by the Roman sculptor Publio Morbiducci (1889-1963) for the competition to design Ireland’s new money in 1928, in which he was ultimately unsuccessful were struck by the Milanese medallists Lorioli Castelli (now Lorioli Fratelli). Trecise numbers of pieces which exist are uncertain, although the best previously published estimates were by Brady in 1976, who thought that three pieces existed in bronze (his numbers 41-3).
