This sestertius shows the clasped hands of unity holding a legionary aquila set on a prow, the latter symbolizing the imperial navy.

The type of this reverse alludes to the concurrence and union of the forces, both on land and at sea, during the reign of this good prince. (numiswiki, FAC)

A nice coin, quite rare with date DESIGN III! The coin-collecting Mazzini died in 1961, so was not the same man as the 19th cent. politician of the same name whose dates you give.
