The first coinage reform in the Papal States was implemented in the early 1830's during the reign of Gregory XVI (1831-46). All the doppie, zecchini, guili, testoni, etc., were dropped in favor of a silver scudo divided into one hundred baiocchi. Gold one, 2½, five and ten scudi were minted at Rome and Bologna until 1865. This type struck for Pius IX 1848 and 1853-63 carried on the standard of Gregory XVI. This specimen is from the Rome mint.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 4.33 g, .900 fine gold.
