ITALY, Papal States. Alexander VI. 1492-1503. AR Grosso (2.65 gm). Ancona mint. Borgia arms in quadrilobe / Ss. Paul and Peter; monogram between. Muntoni I pg. 96, 23; Berman 538. Toned VF. ($150)

Although Alexander extended the secular power of the papacy, began planning the basilica of St. Peter's, and negotiated the treaty that divided the world between Spain and Portugal, arguably his best claim to fame is as the father of Lucretia Borgia.
