For any world coin collector of coins from the Kingdom of France, this publication is simply a “must-have” if for no other reason than for the marvelous illustrations.
Covering the era of 1610 to the end of the Kingdom in 1792, the first entries include those exquisite coins from King Louis XIII to Louis XVI. Gadoury publications have taken meticulous care to include some of the best known examples of these coins and the illustrations provided accord the reader an exact specification for each coin as each are shown to their true diameter. The clear, crisp color images of obverse and reverse also provide a more concise idea of the original strike and tone. All coins are listed and divided by monarch – beginning with bronze issues – billon, silver and gold.
Formatted with their individual catalogue index reference numbers (1 to 363) and listed from smallest to largest denomination, this easy-to-use catalogue includes tables which provide accurate and useful information for grading and prices in EUR. Grades vary from B, TB and TTB and for some examples, SUP.
