Pay attention — centesimo not centésimo: these are two different numismatic terms (the first is inherent in Italian-speaking countries, the second — in Spanish).
The name of the centesimo coin appeared on the Apennine Peninsula in the first half of the 19th century (Kingdom of Sardinia, Kingdom of Lombardy-Venetia...); later — Italy, Vatican, San Marino. The term "Centesimo" comes from the Latin word "Centesimus" — "hundredth part".
