Italy 50 Lire banknote 1939 issue, Banca d'Italia.

Obverse: The drawing, rectangular, includes a watermarked medallion on the left encircled by a coloured wreath of fruits, bound together by a purple ribbon. Stylized flowers and coloured Greek frets compose the rectangular outer cornice. The central background, with geometric designs around the number "50", is yellow and red.

Reverse: At the centre we find a bronze-green Capitoline she-wolf. A circular chiaroscuro cornice, intaglioed with ovolos, encircles the watermark medallion; the outer cornice, brown chiaroscuro on a yellow background and encircled by a Greek fret, consists of a festoon of flowers and fruits bound by a ribbon. The watermark, within the medallion apart from the decorated background, shows the profile of Julius Caesar; the vertical borders, also in watermark, carry the words "Lire 50".
