"Lira Mocenigo (o più semplicemente Mocenigo) è la lira veneziana emessa per la prima volta sotto il dogato di Pietro Mocenigo tra il 1474 ed il 1476. Il Mocenigo mantenne il nome anche con i dogi successivi e fu coniata fino al 1575. I tipi sono quelli classici: al dritto è rappresentato il doge inginocchiato che riceve lo stendardo da San Marco ed al rovescio il Cristo nimbato. Pesava circa 6,52 grammi ed era al titolo del 928 millesimi di fino. Ebbero lo stesso nome anche monete simili di Modena e Mantova, coniate nel XVI secolo. (the lira mocenigo (or simply mocenigo) was the Venetian lira emitted for the first time under the doge Pietro Mocenigo in 1474. The mocenigo maintained its name under successive doges until its final issue in 1575. The design is classic, representing the kneling doge receiving the standard of St. mark from the haloed Christ. It was about 6.52 g, .928 fine silver. Similar coins were minted at Modena and Mantua until the sixteenth century.)" from Wikipedia
