I recently talked to an Italian auction house and their response was that all Italian coins need an export licence.
They require payment immediately.

They said I can collect coins from their offices in person without showing an export licence, but if I want the coins sent by post, then they need yo receive the export licence from me before despatch.

They added that an export licence usually takes about 4 to 6 months, that it's up to me to apply for the licence and pay the application fees.

I think I'll just never buy from Italy.

It has occurred to me that this is a potential business opportunity for collectors travelling to Italy for vacation.


However I have not yet been able to convince my spouse of the idea of a vacation travelling from Torino (Bolaffi) to Pavia (Varesi) to Ferrara (NF) to Bologna (Ranieri) to Rome (Bertolami), picking up sold items to then mail to the buyers once out of Italy.
