Foppa Ambroggio (1452 Mondonico – 1526/1527)

Laying the cornerstone of St. Peters Basilica in Rome, 1506

cast medal, issued by Pope Julius II, bronze; 58.41 g, diameter 56.5 mm, acquired before 1904, Olomouc Archbishopric – Archdiocesan Museum in Kroměříž, KE 7250

The obverse of the medal bears a robust portrait of Pope Julius II and a rear view of the facade of St. Peters Basilica from an unused design by architect Donato Bramante. The purpose of the mint was quite interesting; several coins were inserted in the foundations of St. Peters Basilica.
