Coins & Paper Money

Continuing the ongoing attempt to assist in keeping this Coin & Paper Money

chatting place alive. el Heron will now report Europa Central different issuing

entity number 256:

 

This item recently received via U.S. Mail.  Shipped from the USA Pacific

Northwest. Three days enroute.  Not bad for the old U.S. Mail system.

 

The Coin: An issue by the entity known as Repubblica Romana.  The double

'B' in thatta woid is not a typo or an error.  That is zactly the way it is spelt on

the coin. 

 

This coin is denomiated 1/2 Baiocco. It is Copper 22mm diameter and round.

 

This coin was struck over an existing coin, however, the minter did a good job

on this item and it is well struck.

 

Obverse: Obverse according to the picture layout in Catalog. 

 

                 1/2

            BAIOCCO

 

Legend surrounding this denomination is "REPUBBLICA ROMANA 1849".

 

Reverse: According to catalog:  At center is eagle within wreath.

               Legend surrounding is "Dio E Popolo" 

               At 6 oclock position is large 'R'.  This is for Rome Mint.

 

There is not much history involved with this coin issuing entity.  The Repubblica

was declared a 'state' on 9 Febrero 1849.

 

Declaration was made by revolutionarios Carlo Armellini, Giuseppe Mazzini,

and Aurelio Saffi.

 

The 'state' was disestablished 2 Julio 1849.

 

Heron cannot remember reporting an existing 'state' that had such a short life!

 

Even though the entity lasted less than 5 months, it still counts as nummer 256 in

Heron's accumulation of Europa Central issues.  Such Fun!  Fun for a lifetime

por seguro.  Coin collecting is great.
