In 1918, the liberty head 20 centesimi (KM 44) having become uneconomical to produce, the government dragged out of storage 309 metric tons of old copper-nickel twenty centesimi from the reign of Umberto and restruck them with this design. In 1920, supplies ran out and coining ceased. Most specimens show traces of the undertype.

Recorded mintage: 33,432,000.

Specification: 4 g, copper-nickel, 21.3 mm diameter.
