Styria, circa 1676.

INCHIQUIN, LORD (Brit.), Vice-President of Munster, under
Charles I. A series of undated obsidional money, issued in the early
period of the "Irish Rebellion", is called after his name, " although
ne does not appear to have been in any way concerned with its
issue, for at the time he was engaged in suppressing the rebellion
in the south of Ireland. "

These coins consist of the gold Pistole (only two specimens
known), silver Half-crown, Shilling, Ninepence (2 var.) ; Sixpence
(2 var.), Groat (2 var.) and Threepence.

Lord Inchiquin may have caused the issue of the Cork money,
''Shillings and Sixpences in silver and Pennies in copper, during his
short sojourn in that city in May 1647, "and, continues Mr. Grueber,
"this attribution somewhat supports the tradition that money was
coined there by his order. "
