Vatican City 1/2 Scudo (50 Baiocchi)  1832 to 1834
Vatican City 1/2 Scudo (50 Baiocchi) 1832 to 1834

These silver coins were issued by the Papal States, the predecessor state of the Vatican, which was officially founded in 1929. A beautiful bust of Pope Gregory XVI (the sixteenth) is displayed on the 'obverse' (front), while the reverse portrays Romuald (S. ROMVALDVS). Romuald was the founder of the order of Camaldolese monks, and is honored by both the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches.

The coins were struck in both 1832 and 1834. The 1832 date bears either a B mint mark for Bologna, or an R mint mark for Rome. All dates and mint marks are worth the same. These are sizable coins, and old enough that they pick up some collector value:

worn: $20 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $100
well preserved: $200
fully uncirculated: $400

Damaged coins will be worth base silver value. Each coin contains 0.3896 troy ounces of silver. Use a website such as to look up current silver prices. Please read our Important Terminology page found at the top left in order to properly interpret the catalog values used on this page.
