- The medieval and modern mint(s) in Palermo, Sicily. After numerous coins had already been minted in Palermo in ancient times,
Palermo housed the main mint of Sicily from Aghlabid times until the early Hohenstaufen period. In the 1370s and again in
the 1450s, Palermo has minted only episodically, before from 1679, with the closure of Messina, Palermo became the only Sicilian
mint, active until 1816 (F. D'Angelo, Palermo. In: L. Travaini (ed.), Le zecche italiane fino all'unità (Roma 2011), pp. 967-971).
For the mints "Balarm", "Madinat Siqilliyah" or "Siqilliyah" on Arabo-Sicilian coins, see these specific nomisma IDs.
