France 1706AA 10 sols rev DSLR.jpg

Shown is a 10 sols aux quatre couronnes (ten sous with four crowns) struck at the Metz mint in the last years of Louis XIV's reign. The type was struck 1702-07 for France in substantial numbers but solely from the Metz ("AA") and Strasbourg ("BB") mints. This date is the commonest of the type. The SCWC lists this as a 1/8 écu but Droulers notes this coin is closer to a 1/7 écu.

Recorded mintage: 2,575,400.

Specification: 3.10 g, .833 fine silver, plain edge, designed by Norbert Roéttiers.

Catalog reference: Dr/4 no. 710, Dr/2 no. 513, KM 348.1.
