NEW BOOK: MONNAIES ROYALES FRANÇAISES

Here's a Google-translated description of a new book by S. Sombart on the French Royal coinage from Louis XI to Henri IV. -Editor

Monnaies Royales Fran├žaises book cover Monnaies Royales de Louis XI à Henri IV

Author: S. Sombart
Publisher: Editions V. Gadoury
Year: 2022
€ 39.00

For this new work, the traditional method of classification of the Gadoury editions is respected: the coins are classified by reigns, chronologically then, within each reign, they are classified from the denomination of the smallest value to the greatest value, according to the prices of the time. The logical order of metals is respected with copper (from Henry III), billon, silver and gold.

The types are illustrated at their real size with, each time, the technical characteristics: metal and fineness in thousandths / the official weight / the diameter The rarity index is indicated in the type, from current "C" to "R5" , passing through R (= R1), R2, R3, R4. Generally, an R5 rarity index indicates a coin seen at 1 or 2 copies, R4 for 3 to 5 copies, etc.up to C for a common currency.

Only coins are quoted whose existence we have confirmed and have seen at least one example for sale. The dash "-" indicates an absence of quotation, for lack of sufficient elements to do so: number of R5 coins are for example known only in one copy.
