Papal States 1821R quattrino rev Tom F.jpg

This type is listed for 1816 and 1821-22 and was struck in Bologna and Rome. It is among the common Papal copper coins of the nineteenth century but is not as often seen as the later type of 1835-45 (KM 1319). The early coinage of the Papal States used an antique monetary system. After 1830, 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.

Specification: 2.37 g, copper.

Catalog reference: KM 1276.1.
