Papal States 1791 baiocco rev Tom F.jpg

This type is listed for 1782-94 and was struck in Rome. It is undated but shows the regnal year (XVII) on the obverse. The early coinage of the Papal States used an antique monetary system. After 1740, five quattrini = one baiocco; 100 baiocchi = one scudo. In 1866, the currency was reformed to use centesimi and lire in order to match that of the surrounding kingdom of Italy. In 1870, the Papal States were occupied and annexed by the kingdom of Italy and coinage ceased until 1929.

Recorded mintage: unknown.
