Soragna, which was included in the territory of the Duchy of Parma, would have primarily used Parman currencies. Upon becoming a principality in 1709, the Principality of Soragna was granted the right to mint its own coins. However, this right was not exercised until 1731, when Prince Niccolò Meli-Lupi authorized the production of a goldscudo d'orotrade coin for the country. Trial strikes were also minted in copper and lead. These were the only coins ever produced by the comune. When the Kingdom of Italy was established in 1861, Soragna, now a comune, began using the Italian lira, which continued to circulate throughout all of unified Italy until 2002, when it became replaced by the euro, the current currency of Italy.
