France 1694D quart ecu rev 600.jpg

The specimen shown is an quart d'écu aux palmes struck at the Lyon mint during the reign of Louis XIV of France. It succeeded the quart d'écu aux 8 L struck 1690-93 and was superseded by the quart d'écu aux insignes struck 1701-03. It is more common than either type and the 1694-D is a common date.

Recorded mintage: 440,206 (all flans reformées)[1].

Specification: 6.86 g, .917 fine silver, 27-28 mm diameter, reeded edge, designed by Joseph Roéttiers.
