Papal States 1796 2 bolognini rev Tom F.jpg

This type was issued 1778-96 for Pius VI (1774-99) from the Bologna mint. At Bologna, 80 bolognini = one scudo instead of one hundred baiocchi as in Rome. Therefore four bolognini = five baiocchi = one grosso. This type is not listed as expensive. Copper two baiocchi were minted in Bologna 1795-93.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 1.4 g, billon.

Catalog reference: KM 269, Ber-3066.
