Italy Vatican Papal States Gubbio 1/2 and 1 Baiocco  1740 to 1757
Italy Vatican Papal States Gubbio 1/2 and 1 Baiocco 1740 to 1757

Hello Marcy -- These old coins from the Papal City/States are getting more and more difficult to find. Gubbio (Gvbbio) is a town in Italy and it issued these coins under authority from Pope Benedict XIV. The catalogs report the following values, although I believe these values are somewhat low. Nevertheless, they are catalog values and must be properly interpreted in accordance with our Terminology page.

1/2 (MEZZO, MEZ) BAIOCCO
worn: $10
average circulated (like our picture): $25
well preserved: $40

1 (UN, VN) BAIOCCO
worn: $10
average circulated (like our picture): $35
well preserved: $50

These values apply to coins with any date between 1740 and 1757.

Coin: 5187 , Genre: Central Europe North South
